The mother of a three-year-old girl has become the first person to be found guilty of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the UK. 

The girl’s Ugandan mother was prosecuted under FGM laws after using a ‘witch’ to help her carry out the surgery at her home in Walthamstow, east London.

The girl, now five, told police she was pinned down while a woman they called a witch mutilated her.
