When we look at the large numbers of estimated trafficked girls, we need to remember that the UK has very wide parameters in the definition of trafficking. We tend to think on trafficking as kidnapping and enslaving girls, which is definitely the worst kind. But there is the issue of debt bonding etc. Even paying for a girl's plane ticket from an EU country (ie she's here legally) meets the legal definition of trafficking. So by that logic any EE who works at an agency who's been given a little help coming over here is technically trafficked. And that's not even it. The recent case in Scotland was based on girls being moved from one CITY to another. When you consider the actual, legal definition of trafficking, the figures in that article look conservative.
