Aimee said: I was in labour and I thought I could make it to the hospital. We were just on the way to Dundee from Forfar on the A90.

The contractions then started coming, harder and stronger – but my water had not broken. It broke after we hit a pothole.

I was there for what I felt like forever for me – the baby, at this point, was crowning.

The crew came and got her into the ambulance, where she gave birth.

Peter was born on November 10 at 9.32am, weighing 8lb and 4oz.

Ms young added: I did not get a chance to thank them – it was over quite quickly, and after the birth, we just went to the hospital.

I just want to say thanks for getting to me and finding me in a silly place.
