The proportion of sexually exploited children in Britain who have been trafficked within the country is rising, the children’s charity Barnardo’s warns.
The charity has also noted an increase in the number of younger children they help in some areas and a big increase in the number of children reporting sexual exploitation in Wales.
Of 546 sexually exploited children who Barnardo’s worked with in September, the number known to be trafficked rose by 84 per cent, from 76 to 140 year on year.
That equates to one in four in the UK, up from one in six in 2011, and rising to one in two in Wales.
The number of sexually exploited children known to Barnardo’s rose by 22 per cent to 1,452 in the UK last year and 37 per cent during the past three years.
Barnardo’s Chief Executive Anne Marie Carrie said: “We are shocked at the rise in the number of children reporting they have been moved around the country by abusers.
“Domestic trafficking of children for sex is a sophisticated type of exploitation, a sinister form of organised violation through networks of criminals.
