An off duty police officer was able to give the ultimate Christmas present when he stepped in to save a one-year-old baby in Peterborough.
PC Charlie Wright was driving with his family when a car stopped abruptly in front of him last week.
When he went to investigate, he found a baby who had stopped breathing next to a very worried mother.
