Dad survives 120mph bike crash to see his daughter's birth

A pregnant mum whose husband was languishing in a coma just two days before their first scan says their daughter's birth is the 'best Christmas gift ever', after fearing the baby would never meet her dad.

David Lambert crashed his motorbike at 120mph, breaking his back, right shoulder and most of his ribs.

Wife Claire broke down as she visited him at Royal Stoke University Hospital, before whispering into his ear: "You've got to wake up, we have a baby coming."
