BABIES born during lockdown in Herefordshire have been a welcome ray of sunshine for families in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

But the restrictions have been frustrating for parents, who have been unable to show off their infants to friends and family in the usual way.

So we are helping to spread the good news about Herefordshire's lockdown babies with this gallery of your gorgeous little ones.

Don't forget your special souvenir of this extraordinary time. Our eight-page Lockdown Babies supplement is in this week's (June 4) edition of the Hereford Times (see below). Still on sale now.
