Number of FGM victims in England and Wales rockets in past decade
by Anna Davis
The number of victims of female genital mutilation living in England and Wales has rocketed in a decade, figures reveal.
New data shows that 103,000 women aged between 15 and 49 who have migrated to England and Wales are living with the consequences of FGM.
This is a 56 per cent increase from previous estimates when experts thought there were 66,000 such women living here.
