She is now nursing a broken arm.

Mrs Graham, a senior midwife, said: "We had nearly finished for the day when I lost my footing.

"I put my right arm out to break the fall, and instead I broke my arm!”

She was treated at Darent Valley Hospital, where she said: "I would like to pay tribute to the hospital staff for their kindness and professionalism.

"I’m now trying to work out how to deliver leaflets with one hand!”
