Trafficking victims win appeal

Three children from Vietnam who were trafficked to the UK and forced to work for criminal gangs have had their criminal convictions quashed.

The children were arrested after police raids on cannabis factories and later convicted of drug offences.

In an unrelated case, a woman from Uganda had her conviction for carrying false documents overturned.

Barrister Parosha Chandran said the cases represented "miscarriages of justice" and that the victims had been punished for crimes they were "compelled to commit because of the trafficking."
