Abstract: Barnabus, a Christian outreach charity which works with people involved in the sex trade in Manchester, has reported a sharp rise in the number of women from eastern Europe working the streets in the last 12 months. An estimated 4,000 trafficked women are thought to be working in the British sex trade at any one time, having arrived from across the world. But according to charities, it is not a threat confined to foreign nationals - some believe it is a two way street and that British women also face the threat of being sold abroad.
