Police officers helped safely deliver a baby girl after her mother suddenly went into labour in Kentish Town Road last night.
Pc Burch, Pc Williams and Pc King from the Met’s central north command unit reached Weihong Yu in Kentish Town Road at 9.27pm, and helped reassure her as her baby was born.
Weihong gave birth five minutes later, and London Ambulance Service arrived on the scene just one minute after that.
Insp Jason Stewart from Camden said: “Response team officers work hard around the clock to keep Londoners safe - they have to be ready for anything.
“It’s great that they were able to use their first aid, medical and people skills for such a happy occasion and assist a woman giving birth.
