A helicopter crew had to deliver a baby at 1,000ft after the mother-to-be did not make it to hospital in time from her remote island home.
The woman was airlifted from Unst, Britain's most northerly isle, and were on their way to the nearest maternity ward in Shetland when the Coastguard air crew realised they would have to play midwives themselves.
The 7lb baby was delivered by winchman paramedic Marcus Wigfull at around 6.30am, 10 minutes before landing at Lerwick hospital where the child and mother are said to be doing well.
Mr Wigfull said he visited maternity wards during his paramedic training but that this was his first delivery on a helicopter.
"To be honest, I wasn't nervous. It all happened so quickly and my training just kicked in. It all went very smoothly. There were no complications," he said.
