The NHS clinics helping victims of genital mutilation
by Jane Dreaper
Female genital mutilation, the cutting of sexual organs, is thought to affect 66,000 women in the UK.
Sometimes it happens when young girls are sent back to relatives in north or east Africa, but it is also thought that cutting occurs here in the UK too.
There have been no prosecutions so far - though the government says it is determined to end female genital mutilation (FGM).
