According to koodakpress، missLONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Thousands of children living in British care homes far from where they were brought up are at heightened risk of being trafficked, experts said on Tuesday, as figures showed increasing numbers are going missing.

The number of children removed from families and sent to live long distances away rose to almost 3,700 in 2017, up 64 percent from 2012, according to government data released by British lawmaker Ann Coffey.

The number going missing hit almost 10,000 in 2017, more than double the 2015 figure, she said.

“Record numbers of children are being sent away to places where they are more vulnerable to exploitation,” said Coffey, an MP with the opposition Labour Party who chairs a parliamentary group on runaway and missing children.
