When the taxi arrived, the driver found a couple waiting with the 31-year-old mother-to-be screaming with the pain of contractions.

Although only a very short ride, once in the back of the car the woman shouted the baby was coming and the driver says she could see the head.

Medical staff rushed to the taxi in the hospital carpark – but the baby girl had been born.

The new parents are paying for the taxi to be professionally cleaned – mother and baby are doing well.
