Amnesty International is calling for stronger laws to protect the victims of human trafficking.

A new report claims 25 people were trafficked to Northern Ireland in the past year but as yet no-one had been convicted.

Patricia Campbell from Amnesty International said: "Instead of prosecutions we have, well, nothing."

"We are calling on the Public Prosecution Service to issue guidance to prosecutors to ensure this changes."
