A woman from north Devon has given birth after being involved in a minor car crash.

Vicki Meadows was driving from her home in Barnstaple to visit her parents in Fremington when she bumped her Vauxhall Zafira into the back of another vehicle.

She was driving quite slowly so no one was injured and minimal damage was done to both cars, the North Devon Journal reported.

However, as the 29-year-old stepped out onto the pavement to "swap insurance details" and phone her family she noticed that her waters had broken.

Her father called her an ambulance and she was taken to hospital, where she welcomed her second child; daughter Chloe.

Mrs Meadows and her husband Colin both work at North Devon District Hospital and the couple already have a two-year-old daughter called Jasmine.

She told the local newspaper: "My dad phoned an ambulance which took me to the hospital and two-and-a-half hours later my daughter was born.

"I didn't really have time to think about it. I think the shock of the accident brought on the labour. I was five days late."
