A baby boy was born in a VW Golf which was caught up in the traffic chaos on the Calderdale Way today.
Andrew Littlewood was frantically trying to drive his partner Aimee Wadsworth to the Calderdale Royal Hospital.
He put on his hazard warning lights and sounded his horn trying to dash through the traffic.
The emergency services had already been alerted to the drama and a relieved Andrew saw police and midwives running towards him.
Niall had already arrived in the VW Golf and was quickly covered in blankets and a route through the traffic was opened up for an ambulance to take mum and baby to the Calderdale Royal.
Mum and baby - born around 7 am and weighing 6lb 4oz - are both doing fine.
