'I'm a criminal for wearing a full-face veil'

A new law introduced in Denmark this month has banned the wearing of face veils in public.

Now the first woman to be fined in the country, speaking anonymously, has told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme she will continue to wear the niqab while in public spaces.

The Danish police have not confirmed the issuing of the fine to the BBC.

Watch the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel in the UK and on iPlayer afterwards.
