FGM 'being performed on UK babies' - BBC News

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is increasingly being performed on babies and infants in the UK, we have been told.

FGM expert and barrister Dr Charlotte Proudman said it was "almost impossible to detect" as the girls were not in school or old enough to report it.

In one case, in Yorkshire, a victim was just one month old.

Anna Collinson reports, in the days following a landmark first conviction for FGM in the UK.
