Wigan Warriors fan Lauren Sutton ended up giving birth on Challenge Cup final day, going in to labour at Wembley just minutes before kick off.

Despite Saturday being her due day, she still travelled to Wembley with partner Colin, who's a St Helens fan, but went into labour just 10 minutes before kick-off.

Baby Amber was born at Northwick Park Hospital later that evening weighing seven pounds one ounce.
