A couple whose baby was delivered in roadworks on a motorway have been reunited with the 999 call operators that helped them.

Jayne Rowland, 36, was on her way to hospital when she went into the final stages of labour on the M5 in Somerset.

Her partner Joshua Mogg, 29, said “everything happened very quickly” after he called 999.

Call handler Jonathan Leaton said “they both did incredibly well” and baby Harry was born safely near junction 24.

Mum-of-two Ms Rowland had been on the way to Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton to be induced on 1 November when she went into labour.
