Staff member Jacky Brosnan said she “heard a lady outside in the car park shouting” so she looked out of the window “and there was another younger woman in the car with her feet on the dashboard”.

She then rushed downstairs, grabbing PC Holly Foran along the way, and they went out to help.

“Within two minutes a baby boy was born,” she said.
