A police spokesman said: "Male stopped over the boundary on Preston Police area for no MOT. Wife was very close to labour, however, our chap didn't have a licence... or insurance... or MOT... and failed a drugs wipe. Full house and was invited to a cell at Preston and not the birthing suite. Oh dear!"
