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.

Mr Davies, who was based at Park Royal at the time, is preparing to hang up his hose after 33 years of service.
Michelle Bunn, his partner, is appealing for Ms Pitt and her family to come forward.
She said: “Steve is soon approaching his retirement and I thought it would be a touching moment to have one of his treasured and fondest memory of his career with him on the day or evening of his celebration.
“It would be lovely if Ms Pitt and her family could come to Steve’s as he talks very fondly of this incident and is privileged to have been on call that night.”
