A baby boy was delivered by police officers last night after his father was pulled over for not having insurance.

The baby’s father was captured by a camera as he drove through Northampton – but he told PCs Sandra Payne and James Condon he had just insured his car that morning.

The officers, from Northamptonshire’s Road Crime Team, were with the man when his heavily pregnant wife called him to say she was going into labour.

Chief Inspector Tom Thompson, said: ‘Well done Sandra and James – this will definitely be a story baby Harris’ parents will remember for a long time to come.’

Paramedics from East Midlands Ambulance Service arrived a short time later and took over care.

Inspector Thompson added: ‘I would like to extend my thanks to Sandra and James whose actions ensured that baby Harris was delivered into this world safely.

‘This is a great story and an example of how varied life as a police officer can be.

‘As a Force we’re really proud of how both officers managed to keep Harris’ parents calm and looked after until our colleagues at East Midlands Ambulance Service arrived.’
