Migrant Trafficking - how bad is it?
Migrant workers
The BBC found migrant workers were underpaid and exploited
The government is to investigate evidence gathered by the BBC that migrant workers are being trafficked into Britain and exploited.

Undercover Lithuanian journalist Audrius Lelkaitis, working as part of the BBC News investigation, posed as a migrant worker seeking a job in the UK.

He discovered a new underclass subjected to deception, systematic underpayment and appalling living conditions.

Employment Protection Minister Jim Fitzpatrick said he took the findings "most seriously".
