Couple deliver baby at roadside as ambulance tells them help won’t come for ‘six or seven hours’

Luke Rawlings will never forget the moment he realised his partner was about to give birth miles from a hospital.

The groundworker from Caldicot pulled his car over in the early hours of Friday, January 7, and made his partner Gemma Earle comfortable as he delivered their son Sonny.

Luke, 29, said: “When something like that happens your head’s just racing and you’re thinking of the worst. You’re thinking, ‘What if something’s wrong?’ Luckily he came out all safe and healthy. It’s a story to tell him when he’s older.”
