Britain's Modern Slaves - Listen

Duration: 27:13

Only foreigners are allowed to bring domestic staff into the UK and every year 15,000 migrants come in this way. Two years ago this week rules came in meaning that domestic workers are tied to one employer once here.

In this Asian Network Reports Special Divya Talwar asks whether attempts to curb immigration are creating modern slavery in Britain.
