Suffolk: Special Christmas Day deliveries at maternity unit

IT was a busy day at the county’s maternity units as a number of families got the best Christmas presents they could’ve wished for.

Tiny Olly Robinson was born today at Ipswich Hospital at 3.14am, four weeks early.

For his parents Tawnise and Matty Robinson, of Meadowvale Close, Ipswich, he is their “Christmas miracle”.

Olly, who weighed 6lbs 14oz is one of two Christmas Day babies born early today at the hospital in Heath Road.

And his doting siblings, Vinny, 9, eight-year-old Bethany and Ashley, 6, could not contain their excitement at meeting their “best Christmas present ever”.

And Mr Robinson, 34, added: “The kids said he is their favourite Christmas present ever.

“He has been so good, I don’t think I have heard him cry yet.

“We were always going to call him Olly, but when he was born Olly Murs was playing on the radio so it just seemed right.”
