Gangs targeting private schools to traffic Vietnamese girls to Britain, it is revealed

Private schools are making hundreds of thousands of pounds from Vietnamese children who are entering Britain on student visas then disappearing, it has been revealed.

Children thought to be as young as 15 are being brought to the UK by suspected trafficking gangs through legitimate visas sponsored by elite private schools, an investigation by the Times found.

The students often go missing, in some cases disappearing without a trace, within weeks of starting at the schools. It is believed they are victims of trafficking gangs who have exploited a loophole in Britain’s visa rules to bring minors into the country.

The children – who are mostly girls – are feared to have been trafficked into brothels, cannabis farms or nail bars.
