Teenage mum 'told to stay home'

Women under 25 are six times more likely to lose their jobs than any other age group when they become pregnant, according to new research.
The Equality And Human Rights Commission said 15% felt under pressure to hand their notice in, and 25% said it had an effect on their health and stress levels.
Laura Davies told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire that she was forced out of her job when she became pregnant at the age of 19.
