A baby has been delivered on a Portsmouth motorway hard shoulder after her grandfather was stopped driving at 100mph (160km/h).

Tiffany Ellmore was being rushed along the M275 by her father Colin on Friday night after contractions started.

Police surrounded the car to allow Mr Ellmore to deliver baby Lola Mia Rose.

She was taken to the Queen Alexandra Hospital weighing a "healthy" 6lb 4oz (2.8kg). Police said no action would be taken over the speeding.
