Ten-fold rise in forced marriages in just four years
The number of forced marriages has increased more than ten-fold in just four years, government figures have revealed.
More than 770 suspected cases were reported to the Forced Marriage Unit this year, up from 152 in 2005.
If the trend continues, by the end of this year more than 1,540 Britons will have been coerced into a marriage they do not want to enter - an increase of more than 913 per cent.
