Mexborough-born actor Brian Blessed has revealed he once delivered a baby in London.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4 yesterday, he said: “I was in Richmond Park and a woman was having a baby under a tree.
“I rushed over to her. I told her to breathe deeply and I delivered the baby.
“I got the afterbirth out, then I bit it loose and tied it into a knot and then I called for help.
“My shirt was covered in blood. I was saying ‘it’s alright darling’ and I was licking the baby’s face. It was a baby girl.”
