Modern slavery a hidden crime, says minister

There could be 10-13,000 victims of slavery in the UK, far more than previous estimates, analysis for the Home Office suggests.

Modern slavery victims are said to include women forced into prostitution, "imprisoned" domestic staff and workers in fields, factories and fishing boats.

Modern Slavery Minister Karen Bradley said: "This is very much a hidden crime and we need to get it out in the open".
