Father of newborn 'on cloud nine'

The father of a baby girl born on a train packed full of commuters during rush hour has spoken of his joy.

Allan Stanley was travelling back to his mother's home with her and his partner Sonia Banks when the contractions started.

"I felt like, 'Oh my God'. It feels like I'm on cloud nine. It's mad. I was present at the birth and witnessed everything.

Everything's fine, they are just waiting for the doctor to do some tests and hopefully mother and baby will be released later."
