John Ennis has details.
The prospect of becoming a mum is a serious business and many teenage mums do a great job. However lets be honest I think the vast majority of 17 year olds should be having fun and starting a job or getting an education - not changing nappies! So it's great that the number is continuing to fall (and let's remember it was never the crazy number that the Conservatives picked out of the air!).
From what I can gather it's better education, better opportunities and good work by the council and NHS teams that are making the difference!
