Vauxhall Zafira driver names new daughter after helpful police officer

A Vauxhall Zafira driver has opted to name her newly born daughter after a local female PC after her involvement in the birth, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.

PC Jess Lane broke away from football crowd duty at the recent game between Leeds United and MK Dons to help deliver the baby after parents Lyndsey Haynes and David Miller were caught in traffic.

The parents have now chosen to call their daughter Catherine Louise, the middle names of the heroic cop.

Mr Miller told the publication: "We stopped at the traffic lights under a bridge and I could see the baby’s head.

"I saw a car with four police in which had stopped at the lights and I ran and tapped on the window and shouted ‘my girlfriend’s having a baby’ and they all jumped out."

A paramedic reached the scene by bicycle to cut the umbilical cord before an ambulance arrived to take the newborn to hospital.

According to Vauxhall, the Zafira is a seven-seater vehicle that combines "sharp style" with a "dynamic driving experience".
