'Action needed' on forced marriage says abused teenager
by Tulip Mazumdar
The government is defending how it deals with forced marriage with one victim saying there is not enough help.
According to new figures seen by Newsbeat, there were 1,735 incidents of potential or actual cases involving British nationals reported to the forced marriage unit (FMU) in 2010.
More than half of the cases dealt with last year by the government's forced marriage unit were related to Pakistan.
Meanwhile, almost a third involved people under the age of 18.
