Campaign hopes to combat modern slavery in the UK
The government is launching the first nationwide campaign aimed at raising awareness of modern slavery in the UK.
It intends to encourage the public to identify signs of slavery and report them to a new national helpline.
The Human Trafficking Foundation charity estimates 20,000 people are working in slavery in the UK, and says that number is rising.
The Home Office hopes Parliament will pass an anti-slavery bill before the general election.
