Parking banned close to royal baby hospital
Parking restriction notices have been put in place outside the hospital where Kate Middleton is due to give birth.
The yellow signs cite "Special Event" as the reason for the suspension in front of the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London and come into force today and run until April 30 - meaning Kate is expected to have had her second child by this date.
Kate went on maternity leave at the end of March.
She and Prince William will be anxious to ensure there are no pictures of the Duchess heading in to the hospital and are hoping for less of a media circus this time after photographers and journalists spent days in 2013 on what was dubbed the "Great Kate Wait".
