Welcome to Thanet

I wondered what was going on at the layby on the St Nicholas roundabout when I passed-by this morning.

At around 9:40 a woman from Herne Bay gave birth to a baby girl on the way to the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother hospital.

It’s reported that her partner, who was driving, pulled over to the nearside lane at the St Nicholas at Wade roundabout on the Thanet Way and hailed a passing police patrol car.

The officers got the driver to pull off the road into the nearby truckstop and by the time the car had come to a halt, the baby had entered the world.

A police spokesman said: "The PC stayed on the radio and relayed advice to the mother while they waited for the ambulance to arrive."
