Modern slavery and human trafficking are much more prevalent than previously thought, the National Crime Agency has said.
There are cases in “every large town and city in the country”, the NCA said, with the organisation currently assisting 300 live police operations targeting modern slavery.
The cases involve alleged victims as young as 12 being sold to families in the UK from Europe.
Will Kerr, NCA director of vulnerabilities, said: “The more that we look for modern slavery, the more we find evidence of the widespread abuse of the vulnerable.
“The growing body of evidence we are collecting points to the scale being far larger than anyone previously thought.
“This should not be acceptable in any way, shape or form.”
The NCA has launched an advertising campaign to raise awareness of the signs of modern slavery in everyday life.
Designing your home and transforming it into this vivacious and beautiful abode that charms everyone with its unique and timeless look, could be a daunting task. Everyone around you has ideas, but what matters most is the vision and dream that you have for your own place. Achieving this perfect appearance depends on a wide variety of factors and while the themes, colors and décor that you choose are equally important, what most people seem to forget is flooring.
There was a time when choosing a tile meant picking one of the few ceramic designs available in the market. Times and technology have ensured that today there is a wide assortment and varied choices to choose from.
One of the biggest advantages of tiles is that you get to pick a design and the shade of your choice, no matter how extravagant it is. The current trend also ensures that they are not just limited to your kitchen and bathrooms anymore.
Living room tile flooring
The living room is where you welcome your guests, meet family members and friends. Our advice is to stick to ceramic flooring that is neutral, yet elegant. On the other hand there are carpet tiles offer plenty of room to improvise, but sticking to the classic designs and classy format serves you well. There are also porcelain tiles that look strikingly like real wood and are far more durable and moisture-resistant. Pick one of these if you really want a refined appearance.
