A girl, 11, has ‘given birth’ and is believed to be the UK’s youngest ever mum.
Her family had no idea she had fallen pregnant aged 10, The Sun reports.
Both mother and child are healthy after the baby was delivered last week.
Social services and a council are investigating the circumstances of the case.
A source who knows the family said: ‘It has come as a big shock.
‘She’s now being surrounded by expert help. The main thing is that she and the baby are OK.
‘There are questions around why people did not know.
That is very worrying.’
Tressa Middleton was previously said to be the country’s youngest mum after giving birth aged 12 in 2006.
She was forced to give the newborn up after it emerged she had been raped by her brother Jason, who was 16 at the time.
Another girl in the UK was reported to have given birth aged 11 in 2017, but no further details are known.
