Mum-to-be becomes unwell on Tube

Rush-hour Tube services were disrupted when a pregnant woman became unwell on a train in central London.

Commuters called London Underground staff at 0834 BST to help the woman on a westbound Central Line train.

Staff stayed with the mother-to-be on the train, at St Paul's Station, until London Ambulance arrived to take her to hospital.

Services through the station were suspended for 20 minutes and there have been delays on the Central Line.

Commuters suspected the woman had gone into labour however a London Ambulance spokeswoman said she was "taken unwell".
