SISTERLY love started from day one for Harriet Jackson and her newborn baby sister Erika.

When mum Tracey Rose went into an early labour yesterday, teenager Harriet had to step into action and do the delivery.

Baby Erika was born in a car in Ipswich town centre after surprising the family, of Bildeston, by arriving a week early.

Today, Tracey and Harriet told of the dramatic birth and Harriet's composure.

Tracey said: “Erika's a cherub, and I'm so proud of Harriet.”
