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.

PC Wright immediately put his medical training to use and managed to clear the baby's airways allowing him to start breathing again.

A post on Cambridgeshire Constabulary Facebook page read: "He was soon joined by a uniformed officer and the ambulance service who helped the mother and baby get to a place of safety and provide medical support.

"We're pleased to hear that they are now both safe and sound."
