Following the recent statement from the UK's National Crime Agency concerning the much greater prevalence of Modern Slavery than previously expected, I was invited to speak on Radio Sputnik's World Service to discuss the issue.

Modern slavery and human trafficking in the UK is far more prevalent than previously thought. That is what a major official report by the UK National Crime Agency revealed on Thursday. It has found that modern slavery is happening in all major cities in the UK as well as in every medium-to-large town, and the scale of this problem is shocking.

According to previous estimates the number of victims in the UK was between 10 and 13 thousand. However, these figures were the tip of the iceberg, the National Crime Agency’s director of vulnerabilities – Will Kerr – said at a press conference on Thursday. He added that it was impossible to provide an accurate number because it's a hidden crime, but the Agency now estimates there to be tens of thousands of victims.

Radio Sputnik discussed the issue with Jeff Norman, Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Specialist. He is a Stop Slavery UK founder and offers more than 33 years in the fields of anti-slavery and anti-trafficking within the UK law enforcement services.
