We've got a police chase with a happy ending to report on this morning.

Officers tried to pull over a driver at Dandenong just before 2am, but he refused to stop.

They chased him for two minutes to the emergency entrance at Dandenong Hospital.

The frantic driver finally stopped and told them his wife had just delivered a baby in their car.

Police say under the circumstances, they won't lay charges.

And mum and baby are doing fine.
