The father of a baby girl born on a train packed full of commuters during rush hour has said he feels like he is on 'cloud nine.'
Allan Stanley, 21, was travelling back to his mother's home with her and his partner Sonia Banks, 22, when the contractions started.
Moments later, on last night's 18:18 London Victoria to Maidstone East service, Miss Banks gave birth to a "perfectly healthy" 6lb 13oz baby called Phoebe.
Luckily a midwife, a nurse and a police officer, who were all off-duty, were on board the Southeastern service to help with the birth.
Mr Stanley, from Kent, said: "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."
