The mayor of Miejsce Odrzanskie - which has just one road and around 300 residents - has promised to give a special award to the next couple to deliver a little boy, with only girls born there since 2010.

County Mayor Rajmun Frischko has vowed to have a surprise ready for the parents who next welcome a son into the world.

He recently told the New York Times he is thinking about ''naming a street'' or oak tree after the long awaited male child.
