It was an occasion they never thought they would see, but five generations of a Beccles family have celebrated their new arrival with a family photograph.

Twenty-one-year-old Laura-Rose Spalding was told she was unable to have children due to an ovary condition, but after falling pregnant her miracle baby Lionel-John arrived on April 30 this year.

So thrilled with his unexpected arrival, Laura-Rose decided to get together with her 40-year-old mum Claire Skoulding, 64-year-old granny Carol Cole and 86-year-old great granny Rose Lewis to document the occasion.

She named her son after his two great great grandads the late Lionel Lewis and the late John Ball, and both her mum and granny were there to witness his arrival.

The family had their portrait taken at Klash Photography in Lowestoft.
