Human traffickers in the UK are increasingly using drugs and alcohol as a means of controlling and forcing vulnerable British men and women into slave labour and sexual exploitation across the country, according to the Salvation Army. Figures from the charity show that this year they have seen a doubling of the number of British people coming into their statutory support services after being identified as victims of slavery by the government. Many were homeless and had existing drug and alcohol addictions that had made them a target for traffickers, who then used their addiction to coerce them into forced labour, prostitution or criminal exploitation such as selling drugs or forced begging. Kathy Betteridge, director of anti-trafficking and modern slavery for the Salvation Army, said that although the figures were still low compared with victims of trafficking from other nationalities — 86 British people were referred to their services between June and July — it was an increasing and disturbing trend. The Salvation Army has identified ways that traffickers are targeting potential victims. They then threaten to withdraw supply of drugs or use threats and intimidation to get their victims to sell the substances.
