A woman was celebrating after she gave birth to her first child – during the Glastonbury festival.

Proud Victoria Iremonger, 30, realised she was about to go into labour when she arrived at the site of the famous festival on Wednesday.

She went to the Glastonbury medical tent where doctors confirmed that her waters had broken and she was ready to give birth.

Victoria wanted to have her baby at the festival site but medics insisted that an ambulance was called and she was taken to nearby Yeovil Hospital.

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

Victoria, of Boston in Lincolnshire, said giving birth to her first child at Glastonbury was “amazing”.

She said: “I was just starting to enjoy myself at Glastonbury when my waters broke and I realised the baby was coming.

“I never expected this to happen but it is a great start to the festival. It has really made my weekend. 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.”

Victoria will now remain at the festival, in Pilton, Somerset, for the rest of the weekend with Reuben and her partner Evan Jenkins, 31.

The couple, who run a firewood business, were not expecting the baby to be born at the festival as it was not due until July 11.
