Female Genital Mutilation ( FGM ) "parties" are taking place across the UK, a charity has warned. More and more girls in Britain are being subjected to the illegal practice as midwives are reportedly flown in from across Africa. According to the Black Health Initiative in Leeds, nurses are coming to the UK to carry out the procedure on multiple girls. Then, they claim, a "celebration" is thrown by the families. The charity raised concerns after NHS figures show more than 8,000 girls in the UK have undergone FGM, reports the BBC .
