A schoolgirl from Belfast has allegedly become pregnant after having sex with a 19-year-old man. The girl is 12 years old and is expected to become Britain's youngest mother if she sees out the pregnancy.

Police have confirmed that the 19-year-old man has been arrested after the pregnancy was reported. Because the girl is under the age of 13, the maximum sentence the man may face for statutory rape is life in prison. A PSNI spokesperson said:
