A LEEDS WOMAN was celebrating after giving birth to the first Christmas Day baby in Leeds.
Kate Nkemdirim, from Middleton, Leeds, is pictured with her baby girl born at St James’s Hospital in the city.
The as yet un-named girl was one of several births in the city including a Caesarian section.
A spokesman for the St James’s Hospital delivery suite said: “It has been quite a busy Christmas Day for us.”
It was even busier at Leeds General Infirmary where a spokesman said: “They might have had the first baby but we have been busier with nine born by 1.30pm. It has been a very eventful day for us.”
Speaking at 1.30pm on Christmas Day, the spokesman said: “We have a few more due, too. We are full! It seems to get busier every year on Christmas Day for some reason.”
