Hopes of FGM prosecutions as police probe 60 hotline cases
by Anna Davis
More than 60 suspected cases of female genital mutilation have been passed to the police since the summer, the Evening Standard can reveal.
Teachers, midwives and fathers who fear their daughters are about to be cut have been calling the NSPCC's FGM hotline, which was launched last June.
It has taken 153 calls from across the country, of which 61 have been referred to police and social services, marking a rapid escalation in the number of cases reported.
