Human trafficking for labour on the increase, says report

More than 1,800 victims of human trafficking in England and Wales have received support from the Salvation Army since 2011, the charity has said.

It said 42% of its cases last year involved forced labour, while 38% were sexual exploitation cases and 10% involved domestic servitude.

Forced labour cases grew at a faster rate last year than sexual exploitation for the first time, the charity said.

BBC home affairs correspondent June Kelly reports.
