A baby girl was born at Mercedes-Benz showroom in Stratford on Thursday - thanks to police assistance.
PC Robert Morgan was dealing with a vehicle he had stopped at Rick Roberts Way in Newham when a car carrying the expectant mother, named as Linda Frimpong, pulled up next to him.
The father, who was driving his partner to hospital, asked for help as the baby was on its way.
PC Morgan, a Tower Hamlets safer transport team officer, helped heavily pregnant Linda, who is from Stratford, out of the car and over to the nearby Mercedes showroom.
He radioed for assistance and an ambulance. Joined by PC Christine Goode, the pair, along with the woman's sister, delivered the baby girl at 1.23pm.
London Ambulance Service arrived and took the 28-year-old mother and baby to Homerton hospital.
PC Robert Morgan, said: "We deal with all sorts of incidents, however I wasn't expecting this today.
"The mother was not keen on my suggestion of calling the baby girl Mercedes!"
