A mother of two from Norfolk has given birth in the back of an ambulance on the A47 for the second time. Katrina Maddox, from North Pickenham had very quick labours with both her sons and never managed to reach hospital in time.

Katrina and her husband, Pete, have a two year old son called Reuben who arrived just as the ambulance was passing North Tuddenham on the A47. Her labour lasted just three hours. Baby Edward was delivered a little nearer to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. He arrived just as they were driving past the Longwater retail park in Costessey.
