England has become an epicenter for trafficked Vietnamese in Europe. For years, Vietnamese migrants have been smuggled into England by trucks from Belgium or France. In recent years, the people entering the country are getting younger and the ways in which traders bring people into the country is becoming more dangerous. The journey starts in Southeast Asia with routes via Russia to Europe. Most trafficked Vietnamese who reach England work in nail salons, cannabis plantations and, in the worst cases, forced prostitution. There are concerns about the capacity of European countries to combat human trafficking and to protect vulnerable individuals.
