Concerns are raised on forced marriages

By David Maclean Political Correspondent

A council report has called for measures to be introduced to help tackle forced marriages.

A team of councillors from Leicestershire County Council looked at the issue of people being physically or psychologically coerced into marriage.

Their report says: “During the course of the investigation we have reached the conclusion that there is legitimate cause for concern that some young people from Leicestershire might be forced into marriage.”

Last year, police reported seeing a huge increase in the number of young women who feared they would be forced into marriage seeking help.

Jeffrey Peach, from North Watford, said he had no objection to the march but added: “The first I learnt of the march was when I saw a plethora of police cars and riot squad vans parked in my road.

  1. Every Case of Forced Marriage Will Be Punished in the Future
