Quotes

"More than a quarter of breast cancers are screen-detected. Sadly more than 30 per cent of women in Haringey won’t take up the offer. People from a more deprived background are more likely to die from the disease. It is therefore crucial to ensure that women take up these appointments."
Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham said: "As the chief officer in Police Scotland with responsibility for public protection my main priority in tackling Female Genital Mutilation is in protecting children from harm."
He added: "I am heartened that people are becoming increasingly confident in reporting suspected FGM - it shows that we are getting the message out to communities and other professionals that FGM is a crime and will not be tolerated."
