London, Feb 14 (ANI): Police are not looking to prosecute the 13-year-old Brit boy who recently became a father.

Alfie Patten became a father few days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman, 15, gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said that the force looked at the case and decided that it was “not in anyone’’s interests” for a prosecution to take place.

“Sussex Police Child Protection Team were aware of a 14-year-old girl that had become pregnant as the result of a relationship with a 12-year-old boy, the Mirror quoted the Sussex Police as saying in a statement.

A joint agency investigation with East Sussex County Council Children’’s Services has taken place which has considered the needs of both individuals and there will be continued support for these two young people in the future,” it added. (ANI)
