A mother has given her newborn baby boy a special name after he was unexpectedly born outside Chiswick police station.

Rebecca Fox was discharged from a west London hospital at about 5am on Thursday, 22 June because she had not gone into labour.

However, on the way home Rebecca started to have pains and she alerted her mum Sandra, who was driving, that she needed to return to hospital. As they approached Chiswick Town Hall, Rebecca informed her mum that she needed to push.

Within a few minutes, Rebecca could feel the baby's head, so Sandra swiftly pulled into Chiswick Police Station's car park and began to call for help.

Luckily, her desperate pleas were heard by police staff member Jacky Brosnan who grabbed Hammersmith & Fulham officer PC Holly Foran to help.

"I heard a lady outside in the car park shouting, so I looked out of the window and there was another younger woman in the car with her feet on the dashboard. It looked like she might be having a baby," Jacky explained.

"I ran down and grabbed a police officer who was walking up the stairs, we ran out. Within two minutes a baby boy was born.

"Fortunately, just at that moment, a doctor walked by and asked if all was okay."

While the doctor checked the baby and Rebecca over, Jacky went to the nearby shop to pick-up some supplies for them, including a large bottle of water.

Shortly afterwards, the London Ambulance Service attended and took them to hospital.

Jacky added: "They were both so grateful to us. Rebecca said she was going to call the baby Bobby, how sweet after giving birth right outside our station. It was a beautiful start to the morning."

Both mother and baby Bobby are doing well.
