Another potentially important story from Daily Ireland. It concerns the rapid rise of child prostitution in Northern Ireland, something which is more often associated in the public mind with far east countries like Thailand.Northern Ireland Commissioner for Children and Young People, Nigel Williams:
A number of very worrying reports have come to my attention that criminals are attempting to involve children and young people in prostitution. My office has been liaising with the PSNI and child welfare organisations like Barnardos and NSPCC to promote an effective response to these trends in sexual abuse.
