A POOLE schoolboy is to become a dad – aged just 13. The mother, now several months pregnant, is a 14-year-old who is in the year above the boy at the same Poole school.

The teenagers are now set to become some of the country’s youngest parents.

The parents-to-be cannot be named for legal reasons after Poole council was on Friday granted an 11th-hour order banning their identification.

When asked for an official statement by the Daily Echo, the council declined to comment.
