The Government estimates there are as many as 13,000 people enslaved in Britain today. The Modern Slavery Act gave new powers to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking, yet more must still be done by law enforcement agencies. A recent HMIC report found that although improvements have been made, there is still plenty of work still to be done.
