A father helped deliver his baby son after watching childbirth tutorials on YouTube. Marc Stephens said he had to act quickly when his wife Jo went into labour three weeks early, because she had a history of fast births with her previous children.

The 28-year-old Royal Navy engineer did a Google search for "how to deliver a baby", and after viewing a few clips felt ready to help. Mr Stephens, from Redruth, Cornwall, said: "I didn't have time to panic. She started complaining of pain. I went on Google and watched some clips.

"The next thing I knew, she was coming through the bedroom door on all-fours." After delivering baby Gabriel, the family waited for an ambulance to take them to hospital.
