Plymouth child exploitation film made to raise awareness

A film about child exploitation has been made by students in Plymouth in a bid to raise awareness of the issue.

It is hoped the film, which is about the kidnapping of children for sexual exploitation, could be shown in schools and hospitals in the South West.

Plymouth City College students worked with Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust and spoke to the police and consultants.

The trust hopes the film could help people identify children who are being exploited.

Dr Alex Mayor, medical director of the trust, said: "As recent cases in the media have highlighted, this is a universal problem and a major concern, which has previously been largely unrecognised."
