Female genital mutilation: 'I was screaming'

A BBC investigation has revealed concerns that girls are being brought to Scotland from overseas to undergo female genital mutilation.

Specialist agencies have warned that the procedure is conducted here because the country is seen as "a soft touch".

Fatou Baldeh, remembers being cut aged seven: "I remember I was screaming for my mum and my grandmother to help me but no-one did."

Lucy Adams has been investigating the issue for BBC Scotland.

Please be aware her report contains descriptions that some people may find upsetting.

"The Investigation: Cutting Love" is on BBC Radio Scotland on Sunday, 17 November, at 10:30.
