Ms Zee said: “There are, in fact, two separate legal orders functioning in the UK of which one currently operates in the shadow of the law.

Sharia is the basic Islamic legal system derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith, and while it is practised by many, has no standing within English law.
