This beautiful photograph captured the moment a mum gave birth - in the back seat of her CAR.

Melissa Ayling, 34, wanted to stay at home for as long as possible but left it a little too late and Lockie started to appear while she was being driven to the hospital.

Quick-thinking husband Sam, 29, hastily pulled over, put down some bin bags and shouted to a child playing nearby to "get your mum to call an ambulance".

Calm Melissa lay out on the reclined seats while a random passerby helped out and Sam caught baby Lockie to pass him up for a first special cuddle with his mum.
