'Removing the Blindfold'- All Wales Anti-Slavery Conference

Delegates from across the UK will today attend the All Wales Anti-Slavery Conference being held in Llandudno.

Speakers include the new UK Independent Slavery Commissioner Kevin Hyland as well as North Wales Police, who will outline future plans to tackle the problem.

The conference will also here emotionally charged accounts from survivors of human trafficking.

It comes at a time when there are growing concerns over a rise in slavery and human trafficking in Wales, with reports doubling last year.

The event hopes to bring together key players in Wales and the UK's fight against modern slavery, as well as host of support groups.

"human trafficking is a 'serious and organised crime' with those involved likely to be involved in the other serious crimes like drug production, kidnapping and the criminal use of firearms and so it's imperative we identify and prosecute those responsible and make our communities safer"
