GPs told to warn girls' families that FGM is illegal
by Martin Bentham
Doctors will be asked to warn families of girls who are at risk of female genital mutilation that the practice is illegal.
The move is part of a new drive to stop girls being cut, both here and overseas.
The Department of Health will set out the warning in a printed statement included in a new information pack it is sending to each of the 8,000 GP surgeries in the country.
