A mother-to-be gave birth to a baby at the gates of Donald Trump's Aberdeenshire golf course.

Newborn Ollie Roger Duff clearly holds the same passion for golf as his father, when he decided to come into the world in the driveway of the American billionaire's international links course at Balmedie.

The unscheduled arrival happened when Vicky and Justin Duff were en route to Aberdeen Maternity Hospital from Fraserburgh late on Monday night.

When Mrs Duff started going into labour, Mr Duff pulled over and was able to flag down a passing ambulance.

Delighted grandmother Marilyn Duff, told STV News that she was grateful for the support given to the wife and child, both of whom are doing well.

Ms Duff said: "My son and daughter-in-law managed to stop an ambulance and it drew into Donald Trump's Estate entrance, where the baby was born at 11.58pm.

"My son is a keen golfer and plays off a low handicap. So it looks as if Ollie Roger Duff wanted a quick look at the golf course first before going to hospital."

Proud father Justin told friends: "I am absolutely delighted to announce the birth of our second son Ollie Roger Duff at 11.58pm last night.

"However, we didn't quite make it to the hospital as he came so quickly. I spotted an ambulance ahead on the road and flashed it to stop.

"Ollie was born in the ambulance at the entrance to Trump's golf's the best round I will ever have.

"I would like to thank the two paramedics who did a wonderful job delivering Ollie. Words can't describe how in debt I am to you both. Thank you."

Donald Trump responded with delight to the news when contacted by STV News at his New York office on Thursday night.

He said: "That's great. I'm delighted to hear about this and I wish them all well.

"I would like to offer the family a free day of golf at the course and if they pass on their contact details, I will make sure that we can make this happen."
