Between 100,000 to 800,000 people are still being trafficked into the European Union annually. As policy-makers are busy thinking up new ways to control immigration in the UK, Jody-Lan Castle asks whether enough is being done to tackle human trafficking.  The Metropolitan Police’s specialist Human Trafficking unit was closed down in 2010. As the exploitation of men, women and children continues, this documentary asks Baroness Kennedy QC, Paul Donohoe from Anti Slavery and Sarah Walker from the English Collective of Prostitutes, where is current trafficking legislation going wrong?
