But think of all the great restaurants! Hundreds of young girls are having their genitals mutilated in Bristol

Health bosses across the region have vowed to end female genital mutilation as hundreds of new cases are reported.

It comes after figures from NHS Digital suggest that the number of new victims identified by health professionals is increasing.

In Bristol around 535 victims of FGM – where female genitals are cut, injured or changed for no medical reason – were seen by doctors, nurses or midwives over the last year.
