Isles of Scilly baby boy born on rescue helicopter

A baby boy has been born onboard a Royal Navy rescue helicopter.

Ella McLachlan went into labour on the Isles of Scilly and gave birth to a son, Marcus Daniel McLachlan, in mid-air after Falmouth Coastguard received an emergency call on Tuesday.

The RNAS Culdrose crew tried to get her to hospital before delivery, but had to tell the coastguard the crew of seven had "just increased to eight".
