Huge rise in underage girls with sex disease

The number of cases of chlamydia among under-16s in London has risen ninefold in four years.

Figures show some primary care trusts in the capital diagnosed more than 20 times as many cases among underage girls last year than in 2003/4.

Today, experts attributed the rise in the sexually transmitted disease, which can lead to infertility, to a lack of warnings about the dangers of underage sex.

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STD and it is estimated up to one in 10 sexually active young people has the disease, although there are often no obvious symptoms.
