Storm Baby Born in Petrol Station
7:01am 14th February 2014
A Cornish mum has given birth at a petrol station - after the storms blocked the main roads to Treliske.
Lee-Anne Keast from Long Rock went into labour five weeks early - during last week's 80mph winds.
She and husband Matt leapt into the car to drive to the Royal Cornwall - but found roads littered with debris or lost under floodwater.
With the main routes blocked and busy with traffic, they tried backroads too, getting special permission to used closed roads from police.
Lee-Anne said: "We didn't have any mobile phone reception. The roads were just strewn with debris. There were branches and everything everywhere. Everywhere we went we were going through floods. It was just one of those nightmare journeys."
After taking an hour to reach Hayle and with her contractions coming thick and fast, they rang for paramedics to meet them at Loggan's Moor.
With her feet up on the dashboard, the delivery was extremely quick with little Archie Robin-Lee arriving at 5lb 10oz.
The little tot was taken to Treliske in an ambulance and was kept in for a week with an infection.
Both mother and baby are now doing well.
Lee-Ann told Pirate FM: "I think the stress and the worry and the weather certainly contributed to how quickly he came.
"Driving over all that debris, the car was just bumping over everything. I think I would have progressed a lot slower if there hadn't been so many obstacles in our path."7:01am 14th February 2014
