The evening started out as a normal shift for Special Chief Inspector Adrian Fuller and Special Constable Louis Ford, who were working alongside paramedic Julie Oliver as co-responders.

However, at just after 9.20pm, they were called to provide assistance to a 39-week pregnant woman who had gone into labour at a property in Intake, Doncaster.

“As paramedic Julie Oliver carried out a quick examination, SC Ford and I began preparing the maternity kit.

"Just as we had set the gas and air up it was time to push. A few moments later, after a big push and lots of encouragement, a healthy baby boy was welcomed to the world.”
