baby on DNA register

I noticed this story on Liberal England which also carried the Liverpool Post story on local banks

This story has just gone up on the Sun website:

A baby's genetic profile is on the national police DNA database, ministers admitted last night.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said the youngest person on the database was aged less than one.
There was no explanation of why the baby was there.

Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne blasted keeping kids’ profiles as “illegal, immoral and ineffective”.

Ministers have pledged to remove under-tens from the database.It is great to see the Sun defending our liberties. I wish I believed it would be so keen to do so under a Conservative government.
