UK: Six-year-old girl with learning difficulties forced into child marriage

A six-year-old girl with learning difficulties was removed from school and taken to marry an older man in Pakistan, an investigation has found.
The unnamed child, who subsequently returned to school in the UK, is among dozens of young girls and boys still being forced into marriage despite the introduction of legislation and specific task forces.
She was among a number of cases reported following a Sunday Times investigation, which found child marriages had been taking place in mosques and living rooms in the UK as well as abroad.
