Drunk & disorderly 12 yr old mum

A 12-year-old girl who last month became Scotland's youngest mother has been arrested after a night out. The girl, from West Lothian, who has not been named, was detained on Sunday 16 July following a drunken incident.

Lothian and Borders Police said the girl was arrested for a breach of the peace. A report will be sent to the Reporter to the Children's Panel. The girl became pregnant aged 11 after having sex with a 15-year-old on a night out in Edinburgh last August.

Both the girl and the child have since been put into foster care.

The authorities were called in following reports that the girl smoked up to 20 cigarettes a day and started drinking at the age of 10.

The 15-year-old boy admitted a charge of having underage sex at the High Court in Edinburgh last week, having been previously accused of rape. Sentencing for the youth was deferred to 25 August for background reports.
