The number of reports of possible human trafficking incidents rose 40% last year to 1,711, according to the body charged with collating information about the crime in a new report.

The increase is largely due to police efforts – around one in four reports are now made by detectives, the Comensha organisation said.

In particular, the number of reports of women being trafficked for the sex industry were up 64% to 1,177.

One in four reports concerned a person with Dutch nationality.
