Survivor of FGM asks the UK for asylum - for third time.

'Virginia' fled her country to escape her husband, who she says started abusing her after he joined a local gang, trying to force her to submit to FGM - female genital mutilation

She's afraid she will be killed if her husband tracks her down - which is why she's seeking asylum in the UK. And despite being denied twice, she's appealing again.

If you've been affected by the issues in this story, there are people you can contact for support and help.

Contact the police if you or someone you know is in immediate danger of FGM. Or if you or someone you know is at risk, you can contact the NSPCC anonymously:
