Who is Sean Stewart?

Sean Stewart became known for being "Britain's youngest father".

He was just 11-years-old when he impregnated his 15-year-old next-door neighbour Emma Webster.

The couple were neighbours in the village of Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire, which is how they knew each other before they began a sexual relationship.
