A SUFFOLK Police Community Support Officer has turned midwife after helping to deliver a baby on the back seat of a car in Ixworth.
David and Sarah Fitt, from East Harling in Norfolk, were on their way to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds as Mrs Fitt had started to go into labour. As they reached Ixworth, Mrs Fitt felt she couldn't go any further so her husband pulled into the High Street hoping to find a police officer who could take or escort them to hospital.
They found PCSO Jonathan Burke of the St Edmundsbury Rural North Safer Neighbourhood Team on a call in the village café. He started making calls to get the escort arranged, but it was too later as the baby started coming.
An ambulance was called, and PCSO Burke helped David deliver his daughter on the back seat of his car.
