Britain has a situation on their hands and no one knows quite how to react. An 11-year-old girl is about to give birth to a child even though she is still very much a child herself.
The father is believed to be a boy a couple years older than her, but not many details have been made public due to local authorities imposing strict reporting restrictions (for obvious reasons).
The youngest parents on record at the moment was a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy who had a child back in 2014. The baby is looked after by its grandmother who is only 28.
This situation is highly unusual as the rates of teenage pregnancy are at the lowest they have been in 70 years thanks to access to contraception.
We wish this girl the best and hope that she has a good group of people to help her through what must be a difficult time.
