Victoria Iremonger, 30, will certainly have an interesting story to tell her child of how they came into the world.

The dedicated Glastonbury fan was enjoying the festival when she realised she was about to go into labour. Doctors at the Glastonbury medical tent confirmed that her waters had broken, and that she was ready to give birth. Victoria wanted to give birth there on the site, but doctors insisted she go to the nearest hospital in Yeovil.

She gave birth to Reuben, a healthy baby boy, at 7.30pm on Thursday....and then returned to the festival the next day!

The boy is Victoria's first child, and she told the Daily Mail that she never expected to give birth at the festival, as she was not due until July 11th. She went on to say "Reuben is a very happy camper seems to be enjoying his first Glastonbury. I'm bit of a hippy at heart and I've been coming here for 12 years so this is amazing. It's like a dream"

The family remained at the festival for the rest of the weekend.
