Child traffickers target Northern Ireland border

The border between Northern Ireland and the Republic is an attractive gateway for child traffickers, according to an international report.

The report by child protection organisation, Ecpat, said the Republic of Ireland was being used as a transit point for trafficking to the UK.

The NI border and ferry crossings from the Republic to Wales are favoured.

Ecpat said Ireland was among the poorest performing EU states in combating sex trafficking of children.

The authors said children as young as three years old were being bought and sold.

While the report commended the UK for its efforts in fighting child trafficking, it said the Republic of Ireland was among the worst performing states in the EU.
