STAFF at the Kentish Times would like to congratulate photographer Andy Barnes and his partner Jo on the birth of their daughter.

Summer Violet Barnes was born weighing 9lbs 1/2oz at 12.50am on Sunday, October 12 at Darent Valley Hospital.

Doctors induced the birth on the Saturday because Mrs Barnes was 10 days overdue.

Mr Barnes said: "I'm absolutely elated. We have had so many cards and people ringing us it has been absolutely lovely. We have had so much support from our friends and family.

"Staff at the hospital were absolutely superb. It all happened so incredibly quickly and they were just brilliant. Poor Jo had a really tough time with the birth."

Congratulations are also extended to the couple's other daughter Amber who turned eight on October 13, just one day after her sister was born.

Mr Barnes said: "Amber is absolutely thrilled to have a little sister she keeps cuddling her and holding her.
