Temporary female genital mutilation protection orders have been granted to safeguard two girls from Rotherham from becoming victims of the illegal practise.
The interim FGM orders were granted by Sheffield Family Court last month, following an application by South Yorkshire Police and their Legal Services team.
They give specific stipulations to those subject to the order about their behaviour and conduct, intended to protect the welfare of the girls.
Failure to comply with the court order is a criminal offence, and can result in a maximum prison sentence of five years.
Force lead for Honour Based Abuse, Forced Marriage and FGM, Detective Inspector Suzanne Jackson said: "FGM protection orders are a powerful and preventative means of protecting females from FGM.
