Revealed: Harrowing honour-based violence and forced marriage investigations in Cambridge area
by Raymond Brown
More than 20 investigations have been launched over allegations of honour-based violence and forced marriage in the Cambridge area in one year, it has been revealed.
The Cambridgeshire Constabulary was the second force in the country to launch a hotline for victims of the crime in 2007 and has since dealt with some harrowing incidents.
In one case, a young girl was removed against her will from one country to another and forced into marriage. She was rescued from the situation and made safe.
