They say the new year brings new beginnings and that’s certainly true for one Derbyshire couple – whose little bundle of joy arrived on New Year’s Day.

As celebrations took place across the county to ring in the new year, Julie Mosley and her partner Chris Barton marked a different milestone in their lives, the birth of their son Lukas, Alexander Barton.

The couple’s first child was born five days early, at 4.36pm on January 1, weighing five pounds eight ounces.

Lukas, whose family live in Mosborough, was one of four babies born on New Year’s Day at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
