Female Genital Mutilation 'Parties' in Britain with Nurses Being Flown in to Carry out Painful Procedures

Female Genital Mutilation "parties" are taking place across the UK, a charity has warned.

More and more girls in Britain are being subjected to the illegal practice as midwives are reportedly flown in from across Africa.

According to the Black Health Initiative in Leeds, nurses are coming to the UK to carry out the procedure on multiple girls.

Then, they claim, a "celebration" is thrown by the families.

The charity raised concerns after NHS figures show more than 8,000 girls in the UK have undergone FGM, reports the BBC.

Heather Nelson, Chief Executive of the Black Health Initiative, said: "We know of parties happening here in England, and in West Yorkshire we recently had to break one up, and we've stopped another from taking place.

"What we're finding now is that where once girls were taken abroad to be cut, specialist midwives are now flown over and several girls are cut at the same time, which then leads to a celebration."
