It was an unforgettable start to 2021 for parents who welcomed their newborn babies into the world on New Year's Day in Lynn.

Despite wider restrictions on visiting due to Covid-19, it proved to be a joyous occasion for couples who were able to see their child born at Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Hollie Kirk and her partner Jordon Bannister now have a baby girl called Lylah who was born at 12.45pm on January 1, weighing 6lb 12oz.

Mr Bannister said: "It's just incredible and it feels really nice and fitting for her to be born at the start of the year.

"We were watching the fireworks outside when she went into labour, which was a massive shock if I am honest."

Lylah is the couple's first child and was born two weeks early.
