Domestic servitude

Duration:
40 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 22 June 2010

Described as the modern-day face of slavery, scores of foreign workers are being brought into the UK to work in domestic servitude. They work long hours - often under physical duress and for low or non-existent pay. File on 4 investigates whether the authorities are doing enough to protect these workers - and to prosecute the people who've exploited them.

Reporter: Jenny Cuffe
Producer: Nicola Dowling.
