Human Trafficking Unit Closure 15 Dec 2009
What are the implications of the Metropolitan Police's decision?

Human Trafficking is recognised by Interpol as the third largest international crime - after arms and drugs trading. The specialised Metropolitan Police Unit dealing with this crime is acknowledged as one of the best of its kind, however they have just announced it is to close. Recently there has been controversy over the numbers of women in the UK who have been trafficked, so what kind of impact will the unit's closure have? Jane is joined by Mary Honeyball MEP and Nikki Adams from the English Collective of Prostitutes to explore the reasons and potential consequences of this decision.
