Dad arrested in hospital after watching birth

A PROUD Motherwell dad was arrested in a hospital ward minutes after witnessing the birth of his child.

Police officers took him away for breaching bail conditions banning him from contacting his partner.

The man had gone with the woman in an ambulance to Wishaw General when she went into labour.

Officers were alerted he shouldn’t be with her, but allowed him to stay for the birth before arresting him.
