Cannabis farms and nail bars: the hidden planet of human trafficking – podcast | News


Distraught Vietnamese households are searching for details about their missing loved ones immediately after the bodies of 39 persons had been discovered in a refrigerated lorry trailer in Essex on 23 October.

Annie Kelly, who reports on modern day slavery for the Guardian, talks to Rachel Humphries about why persons are getting trafficked into the UK, and what occurs to them when they get right here. Official statistics say up to 15,00 persons are trapped in a kind of modern day slavery in the UK – even though these functioning on the frontline think this figure to be a massive underestimation.
