‘I don’t want to grow a beard’

Exclusive figures that show that the number of children aged 10 or under who are being seen by the NHS because they are unhappy with their biological sex has almost doubled in the last year.

It has gone up from 87 to 167, and that includes three children aged 3.

The interviews have been conducted anonymously and we're not using their real names.
