A Turkish Airlines cabin crew has welcomed one more passenger on board after helping to deliver a baby girl during a flight

The mid-air labour began shortly after the plane had taken off from Guinea bound for Burkina Faso.

Nafi Diaby, who was 28 weeks pregnant, complained of childbirth pains following takeoff before things quickly escalated on the 2h 10m flight.

Fellow passengers helped the staff support her during the successful labour before welcoming the newborn, who has been named Kadiju
