Forced marriage: Henna Foundation on cash concerns

A charity working with women in south Wales who have been through forced marriage says groups are struggling to survive because of a lack of funding.

It follows the case of teenager Shafilea Ahmed, 17, from Warrington, whose parents were jailed for life last week for her murder.

Their trial heard that Shafilea had resisted an arranged marriage.

The Welsh government says groups helping women have been given a share of £4.16m this year.

Shereen Williams, of the Henna Foundation, which works with the Muslim community spoke to Felicity Evans on Good Morning Wales.
