A MUM-OF-FOUR gave birth to a baby girl at the side of the motorway.

Tiffany Ellmore, from Buckland, had her daughter Lola-Mia Read on the hard shoulder at junction 12 of the M275 northbound on Friday night at around 10pm.

The 26-year-old’s dad Colin was driving her to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham when he was pulled over by four unmarked police cars for speeding.

But when officers reached the car, they realised Colin had just delivered 6lb 4oz Lola-Mia.

They phoned for an ambulance which took Tiffany and Lola-Mia to hospital.

The mother and newborn were released from hospital on Saturday evening.
