Dawn Brooke gave birth without the aid of fertility treatment breaking the previous world record for a natural pregnancy by two years.

Mrs Brooke and her husband Raymond avoided publicity at the time of their son's birth 10 years ago and details have only now emerged after some of the family spoke out.
