Child trafficking in Britain up by 50%, says study – Robert Booth – The Guardian, 4/25/09 – The rate of recorded child trafficking in Britain has increased by almost 50% in two years, according to figures released yesterday by the Home Office’s child exploitation and online protection centre (Ceop). In all, 325 children from 52 countries have been identified by government agencies in the latest survey – from March 2007 to February 2008 – as potential victims of trafficking, with many brought into the UK for activities including prostitution, illegal labour, forced marriage and illegal adoption. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/apr/25/child-trafficking-in-britain-survey
