Do you know the whereabouts of Harlesden mum Angela Pitt?

Appeal to trace woman who gave birth in a hospital car park

The partner of a fireman who delivered a baby in a hospital car park is appealing for the mother and her son to come to join them at his retirement party.

Steve Davis had been called to check a smoke alarm at Central Middlesex Hospital in Park Royal, on June 5, 2006, when he was called to a car where Angela Pitt was about to give birth in the passengers seat.

Her partner Nicholas Appiah had run into the building for help and their son Teshan, who was nine at the time, called Mr Davis to the car.

The modest engine driver said: “I just assisted. I made sure the cord didn’t get caught round the baby’s throat…and waited for the medical team to arrive.
