Campaigner celebrates Newham school's efforts to stamp out FGM
by Anna Davis
An east London school has been praised for its work to stamp out female genital mutilation.
Forest Gate Community school in Newham was singled out by an expert as a "beacon of excellence". It had called in FGM survivor Alimatu Dimonekene to train teachers about the issue but she said it was already streets ahead of most other London schools.
Her comments come as campaigners warn the "cutting season" has started and girls are now at heightened risk of falling victim to the brutal practice.
