Thomas Bowles, who was due on January 29, became the second baby born at the hospital on New Year’s Day when he arrived at 4.47am weighing a healthy 8lb 6oz.

His father Jeremy, 36, a Merlin helicopter pilot based at RAF Benson, in Oxfordshire, who has just returned from a four month tour in Afghanistan and mother Sarah, 39, from Kirstead Green, near Brooke, were delighted at the New Year’s Day arrival - a “little brother” for his sister, Daisy, seven.
