A die-hard royalist pensioner camped outside a London hospital for the royal birth was left out in the cold after his bed was stolen.

79-year-old Terry Hutt from Weston-super-Mare had to spend a freezing night in the cold after his special Union-Jack-themed camp bed was stolen during a trip to the bathroom.

However Mr Hutt, who spent 13 days on a bench in 2013 to greet the arrival of Prince George, says a kind policeman bought him eight cups of tea to keep him warm. He has also now been bought a new bed.

The royal family fan says he is still determined to stay outside St Mary's Hospital until the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth - and says he has inside information that it won't be long now.

He hopes the baby will arrive on April 30th - his 80th birthday.
