NEW Year's Day brought baby joy for one set of Redditch parents at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

Among the proud parents celebrating in Worcestershire Royal Hospital's Lavender Delivery Suite were Emilie and John Wormington of Redditch, saw their first baby arrive at 9.56am, and it turned out to be a girl, who they have named Edith.

Mr Wormington said: "We got here at 6pm, so it's been a long night. Emilie is very tired but we're both delighted."
