Hackney FGM campaigner warns the "cutting season" has begun as arrests are made
by Emma Bartholomew
Fears the "cutting season" has begun after a woman was arrested at the weekend for conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation (FGM).
A campaigner voiced the concern after a 40-year-old woman was held in Hackney on Friday under Section 2 of the FGM Act 2003, namely aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring a girl to carry out FGM on herself.
Specialist officers took the girl - a UK national - into the care of social services.
