Anti-slavery day marked across the south

Police forces across the south are trying to raise awareness of modern slavery surrounding us.

To mark Anti-Slavery Day, a series of events are being held - aimed at highlighting crimes like human trafficking, sexual abuse and workplace exploitation committed against society's most vulnerable.

Slavery related crimes are on the increase, and campaigners are calling for tougher sentences for those responsible and for us all to recognise the signs of modern slavery within in our communities.
