Not one Dacorum baby came into the world at Watford General Hospital on Christmas Day.

The maternity ward, which is where most expectant mothers from Hemel Hempstead go to have their babies, saw the arrival of 12 newborns - eight boys and four girls - on the big day.

But these bundles of joy were all born to parents from the Watford and St Albans areas.

The first baby to be born at the hospital on Christmas Day was a boy, who came into the world at 2.55am.
