Her little sister had been allowed to have a couple of friends of hers there too. She was 12 and pretty much looked it. One girl looked totally out of place and people were confused as to why this 17ish looking girl was spending so much time with the little sister. She was 12 too... in fact she came out with the rest of us to a local pub after the party at the house. She should have probably been ID'd...she wasn't looking 18 that comfortably. But she plausibly looked it and fit in with the group as a whole, many of whom were 16 or 17 too, all of us working at McDonalds and bouncers didn't give a shit about girls as long as you looked like an older teen and were pretty.
Some other work colleagues had now turned up at the pub and one girl told me, sat by myself shyly, to "go and ask Kelly's friend to dance". I replied that I wasn't interested in a 12 year old and the girl looked shocked...at my "rudeness" and assumed I was being sarcastic as I was 22 or 23 and so and she thought I was exaggerating for effect i.e. that I was saying she was a kid to me at 17ish. She went over to tell her how rude I'd been...and wandered off afterwards looking sheepish. Had I not known already there's no way I'd have suspected she was underage in that way, under 18 maybe but not under 16. Nobody in their late teens or early 20s in a bar being chatted up by her would have likely turned her down...

Scroll down and look at some of the photos of this girl...especially the one with her dad on the sofa and with no make up which was taken just after the events in the article happened (some others are older photos I'd say). You would definitely want to ID this girl...but she's fucking 11...imagine how she might look another year later with makeup etc. If age 16 was your only concern you'd definitely be in trouble.
