Two held over 'genital mutilation'
Lancashire Evening Post
Two men have been arrested in Birmingham by police investigating claims that female genital mutilation is being offered in the UK.
West Midlands Police said a 55-year-old and a 61-year-old were arrested after officers from the force's public protection unit attended three separate addresses.
Detective Inspector Caroline Marsh said: "We are still in the very early stages of this investigation but I hope this morning's action sends out a clear message about how seriously we are taking these allegations."
