A youth charged with raping his own mother has been bailed.

At the second hearing of his case magistrates at Preston decided to allow the 14-year-old bail.

He is the youngest ever male to be charged with raping his mother in Britan.

Initially District Judge Jeff Brailsford sitting at Blackpool Magistrates Court remanded the youth in custody.

However at the second hearing today he was given his freedom on condition he lives and sleeps at an address to be decided by social services.

He was charged at the weekend following a complaint to police by his mother.

The offence is alleged to have taken place at the family home in Blackpool.
