Two PCSOs delivered a baby in the back of a car after being flagged down by an anxious dad.

Claire Whomes and Sarah Duffy were stopped around 7.30pm on Saturday night by Nick Cushing, because his wife Claire was giving birth in the back seat.

PCSO Whomes spoke to paramedics on Nick's mobile, while PCSO Duffy helped mum Claire in the back seat.

Baby Francis was delivered in the back of the car a few minutes before the ambulance arrived and took the family to Arrowe Park Hospital.
