Two-year-old 'at risk' of forced marriage
by Poonam Taneja
A two-year-old was among at least 250 children in the UK helped last year by a unit which tackles forced marriages.
The Forced Marriage Unit gave advice or support in 1,485 cases in 2012, although it is believed many other forced marriages go unreported.
The authorities can intervene when they believe there is a risk children under 18 may become victims.
