BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, England — Frantic Kim Leighton gives birth in a shopping centre as she tries to get to a maternity hospital.
CCTV captured the drama in a street close to Kim's home after she warned her worried mum Sue the baby was imminent.
Kim, 25, said: "I pushed and the baby was in my mum's arms." Paramedics were soon on the scene to cut the cord and take the pair to hospital.
The girl Leanne, who weighed in at 6lb 4oz, has been given the middle name Eden - in honour of the Eden Shopping Centre in High Wycombe, Bucks, where she was born.
After her waters broke, Kim and her son Lewis, four, were led to a car by Sue who was on emergency stand-by. The CCTV images, which emerged yesterday, show they had only gone a few yards when it was clear it was too late.
Sue said: "Kim told me, 'I can feel the baby. I can feel the head'."
Kim said she will show Le anne, who was born in October, the amazing pictures when she is older.
