Woman gives birth at Notting Hill Carnival as crowds of revellers cheer her on | The Sun

A WOMAN gave birth at Notting Hill Carnival in front of cheering revellers.

Emergency crews were rushed to West London last night as thousands descended for the festival.

Video showed police helping the new mum as a crowd around her sang: "She's had a baby".

It is not known if the woman was attending Europe's largest street party or not and there is no update on their condition.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called at 18.45 on Sunday 28 August to reports of a person in labour within the footprint of Notting Hill Carnival.

"We treated an adult and baby at the scene and took them to hospital as a priority."
