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.

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.
