Mother, 12, arrested on night out
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 send 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.

Background reports

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.

Did the 15 year old boy get done for rape?

Where the Feck is she getting the money for fags? (£5x30 = £150 per Month). Some how I don't think she has a paper round!

No doubt some of my hard earned taxes are going towards keeping this waster in fags and booze. The child should be seperated from the mother and given to a proper family who work, have morals and who can raise it properly. As for the rest of the 'family' of the 12 year old, her 'partners family' and the rest of them, cut off their benefits and let them do whatever it is in their little world (after they have all been sterilised that is). Disgusting.

I said that when the story first broke.

What does her mother really do? I know the dad is long gone, but the "grandmother" was proud of her daughter in a warped way. I take it the granny was babysitting. Or was it the family dog?

I was led to believe that sex with a minor under the age of 13 was classed as statutory rape regardless of whether consent was given or not. I firmly believe that both of these kids should face the music. After all, it takes 2.

Unbelievable!

They should trace all family members; cousins, aunts, uncles, neices, nephews from both sides, right down to people who know them too.



Put them all on a boat and let it sail out to sea for 10 hours. Chuck the lot of them overboard. It should be broadcast live on TV, daytime TV when Jeremy Kyle is on.

It may act as a deterrant for the rest of the plebians who fail to realise what bringing a child into this world means.

State endorsed castration. I'm all for it.

Failing that, a big bucket of sunshine, lets start the human race again.


With the amount of tax I pay, I own at least ten of these little twats. Let me have them, theyre mine. They can work their debt off down my diamond mine.

The little rat is getting money that shes not earning to spend on fags and booze! She should be ashamed of herself, and definately should be punished along with the other lad, but instead of punishment shes getting money off the government so that she can kill her baby with passive smoking. The poor baby should be taken away from the little rat, no child deserves to be brung up like that.

Why is this now becoming more and more occurant. The amount of stories you see and hear in the news about underage mothers, underage mothers getting younger and younger, underage mothers living off benefits for the rest of their bone idol lazy lives. Has the education system just gone tits-up in the last 20 years? When I was that age, even I knew about the 'birds and the bees' and the effects of alcohol and smoking.

Have they started issuing the kids with free stupid-pills instead of free milk at break-times???

I despair

Maybe the way forward is to introduce bromide for the boys and OCP for the girls! Although I'm sure there would be uproar from the parents about their children's choices not being taken into consideration! The way ahead is to cut the little darlings benefits and the other alleged perks that come with Motherhood then they might think twice about having the child in the first place!

Mrs Thatcher took away my free school milk in 1989. I don't think you can blame the education system - they only have the kids a few hours each day, where they are presented with the information on the birds and the bees. If they then go home and they see their parent/parents/family acting and behaving in a different way how are they to know better? It's sickening, but I don't see an end to it

Crabby, free school milk in 1989! why were you not 'avinit it like a good un' down the local warehouse bash with a nose bag full of mdma or am I old?

fekkin kids.

Anyway until recently the norm was for girls to be married by 14, throughout the world. While we are educating away from such horrors the occasional throwback will occur. This is not a recent invention.
I was 4 at the time - but I remember it well.

Good point on the age - many countries have a lower age on consent and traditionally there were girls married at 14 - they're physically ready to reproduce - mainly. However, to be 12, have a baby, out on the lash and smoking is completely unacceptable - by the standards of any era. In the good (very) old days she might have been chucked out of her village to fend for herself - or at least there weren't benefits from a state to support her dirty habits

P.S - mdma???

It has nothing to do with the schools. It is down to the lack of parenting skills.

I remember my Grandmother telling me about one of her cousins, he got a girl in trouble (both aged 14/15 yrs) and when his Father found out he marched his son down to the police station and handed him in and made sure charges where brought. He was sent to a "Bad Boys School" as my Gran would say. Once he came out he enlisted then married the girl and did very well in the Army. But this was back in the 1920/1930's so a lot has changed.

Did anyone read about the single mother this week,
6 children by 5 different fathers.

Her doctor wrote on her medical notes that she was
a walking social disaster and should be sterilized.

Of course this didnt go down to well, and he's before
a tribunial.

Couldnt stop laughing, funniest thing ever :eek: :eek:

The child was taken off her some weeks ago and placed into care. She's from this town I live in but lives in a council estate at the other end of town. We heard some comments about her on the Scottish news, that's how we know the baby is in care.

I'm surprised the police haven't submitted as report to the procurator fiscal. This girl needs a spell inside.
