Met Human Trafficking Unit Forced to Close

The anti-human trafficking team which successfully brought six sex traffickers to justice last week will be forced to disband following the withdrawal of government funding. The Metropolitan Police do not have sufficient funds to keep the unit running.

Really disappointing stuff.

We hardly need any reminder of the importance of the team’s work, but The Guardian has an interview with one of the women who appeared in court last week to testify against her traffickers.
