Radio 1 Stories heard from young people who were trafficked and enslaved in the UK. These people bravely spoke out against their former slave owners and traffickers to tell their own personal stories.
We may have thought the UK abolished slavery but it is still happening in brothels, farms, construction sites, car washers, nail bars and even on your street. Victims are usually vulnerable individuals, often captured when they’re young and may never know a life of freedom.
Slaves can be controlled on an international scale by their traffickers and slave holders. Yet this crime is hidden from the police and the public. We heard what really goes on in this criminal underworld operating in the UK as former slaves speak out for the first time.
