Five generations of the same family have been captured in a picture celebrating their newest arrival.

Two weeks old Ethan, of King’s Lynn, is cradled by his great, great grandmother, 91 year old Mabel Watson, of Elm.

Sat to her left is his great grandmother Pauline Smith, 71, of Wisbech, while his proud father Liam Ryan, 28, of King’s Lynn, perches behind.

The group is completed by Ethan’s grandmother, 50 year old Karen Ryan, of King’s Lynn, who sent in this picture.

She said: “It was really, really special. My nana (Mabel) was absolutely delighted to hold Ethan in her arms.”
