A spokesperson from the supermarket told The Tab: “A lady was found in the toilet clearly distressed and a colleague phoned an ambulance.

“Philly was quick thinking and delivered the baby in store.

“The baby was born happy and healthy.

“We did think he was called Wayne but apparently that has changed.”

Witness Wesley Healy tweeted his recollection of event.

He thought “some dickhead” had fallen over when drunk but was shocked to see the newborn baby upon entrance.

He praised the staff for their reaction to the baby boy being born.
