Haringey Borough Council to work with police to tackle female genital mutilation
by Jaber Mohamed
A senior councillor said Haringey Borough Council will work with police and the community to stop female genital mutilation.
Councillor Ann Waters, cabinet member for the children, made the comment after Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, organised a meeting to discuss a strategy to tackle the problem.
More 20,000 girls across the UK are believed to be at risk of being made to undergo the procedure, sometimes known as female circumcision.
