Fashion student tries to decide whether to adopt the hijab, the niqab or neither.

An 18-year-old fashion student is trying to decide whether to wear the hijab, the niqab - or avoid a headscarf altogether.

Nishrat Islam, who is from Luton, said she was verbally abused by three men on the one occasion she wore the niqab - a headscarf which covers a woman's face, leaving just her eyes showing.

She asked people in Luton to see what they thought about the niqab.
