A couple threatened to kill their daughter if she rejected a forced marriage and behead her if she contacted authorities for help.
A judge has since granted a temporary forced marriage protection order, banning the parents from leaving Britain, after the local authority in Croydon, London, said it 'did not trust them an inch' and feared younger children in the family would be spirited out of England if they were able to leave.
