Every large town and city is affected.

:00:00.:00:14.

There are hundreds of police operations to break up

:00:15.:00:16.

The National Crime Agency says it's only the tip of the iceberg.

:00:17.:00:22.

What we have found over the last in terms of the scale and scope

:00:23.:00:25.

of this problem has shocked us and worried us.

:00:26.:00:30.

From high street nail bars to social care and building

:00:31.:00:32.

sites, there are tens of thousands of victims.

:00:33.:00:37.

Even now I feel like my heart is start beating a little bit.

:00:38.:00:46.

We'll be looking at what's driving this cruel and

Sandwiches and salads are among the products

Good evening and welcome to the BBC News at Six.

:01:43.:02:06.

The National Crime Agency says modern slavery and people

:02:07.:02:08.

trafficking in the UK is a far larger problem than

:02:09.:02:11.

It says victims are likely to be found anywhere

:02:12.:02:16.

There are likely to be tens of thousands of them working

:02:17.:02:21.

More than 300 police operations are currently targeting

:02:22.:02:27.

In just two months this year, the National Crime Agency says

:02:28.:02:38.

Here's our social affairs correspondent, Dominic Casciani.

:02:39.:02:42.

Another day, another anti-slavery operation.

:02:43.:02:45.

Over the last six months, the National Crime Agency has

:02:46.:02:50.

coordinated operations to smash trafficking and slavery gangs.

:02:51.:02:52.

This suspected brothel, run in the north-east of England,

:02:53.:02:55.

Today a new analysis from the agency suggests the true scale of modern

:02:56.:03:02.

slavery is far greater than previously suspected.

:03:03.:03:06.

This man from Romania was coerced into hard labour.

:03:07.:03:08.

The gang controlled his life for four months until he got out.

:03:09.:03:12.

It's just horrible, I tell you, it's just horrible.

:03:13.:03:15.

Even now, I just feel like my heart is start beating a little bit.

:03:16.:03:19.

Modern-day slaves are tricked into UK by gangs promising a better

:03:20.:03:29.

life, and coerced into work they can't escape from.

:03:30.:03:32.

Women forced into prostitution make up to ?600 a day.

:03:33.:03:35.

Men are trapped in gruelling work in food processing or agriculture,

:03:36.:03:40.

and victims are on high street in nail bars and car washes.

:03:41.:03:45.

You are more likely than ever before to unwittingly come

:03:46.:03:47.

A cannabis farm in a suburban home, run by workers under

:03:48.:03:53.

It's impossible to count all the victims because like this

:03:54.:03:59.

enterprise, they are hidden from view.

:04:00.:04:03.

But investigators say the more they look, the more they find.

:04:04.:04:05.

We have also seen people as young as 13 and 14 being sexually

:04:06.:04:09.

exploited and forced to engage in prostitution.

:04:10.:04:11.

This is a growing problem for which we think there's a shared

:04:12.:04:16.

responsibility across society in the United Kingdom to address.

:04:17.:04:22.

But critics say more could be to identify trafficking.

:04:23.:04:26.

The UK's anti-slavery commissioner has accused the NCA

:04:27.:04:28.

of acting too slowly on its own intelligence.

:04:29.:04:33.

Charities investigating abuses say there are obvious signs that someone

:04:34.:04:35.

They are forced to work against their will.

:04:36.:04:40.

The trafficker controls their finances, controls their movement.

:04:41.:04:48.

In the small villages there are few jobs and no money...

:04:49.:04:51.

A new online campaign by the National Crime Agency.

:04:52.:04:54.

It's pledging to carry on raids month after month, but investigators

:04:55.:04:57.

say they will still need the public's help to

:04:58.:05:00.

Dominick is with me now. A massive problem is you have just said. Do we

:05:01.:05:14.

know what is driving this trade? This is a story of our modern times.

:05:15.:05:19.

You will recall how globalisation has transformed the way people move

:05:20.:05:23.

around the world. With that comes modern problems and crimes. What has

:05:24.:05:27.

triggered a lot of the problems in the UK is international crime gangs

:05:28.:05:31.

shifting from bog-standard stuff like drugs into trading people,

:05:32.:05:36.

seeing them as commodities. You can trade in drug once and you can use a

:05:37.:05:45.

person time and again. Make far more money than ever before. One big

:05:46.:05:48.

issue is that critics say there are serious inconsistencies in how some

:05:49.:05:50.

of the forces investigate what is going on around the UK and they want

:05:51.:05:54.

a more joined up approach. A National Crime Agency says it is

:05:55.:05:59.

doing what it can. Our Prime Minister and former Home Secretary

:06:00.:06:03.

made this a priority when she was at the Home Office. New laws are now in

:06:04.:06:07.

place. The message from the NCA is it is time to get tougher but they

:06:08.:06:12.

need the public's help to get there. Thank you very much.

:06:13.:06:15.

The Food Standards Agency says that some 700,000 imported eggs

:06:16.:06:18.

contaminated with a pesticide have entered the food chain here.

:06:19.:06:24.

That's a massive increase over the original estimate of 21,000.

:06:25.:06:27.

Several supermarkets have withdrawn egg-based products but the FSA says

:06:28.:06:29.

they are unlikely to pose any risk to public health.

:06:30.:06:32.

Dumped and discarded. This Belgian farmer has had to destroy not just

:06:33.:06:46.

his eggs but his hands as well. The produce is contaminated with an

:06:47.:06:49.

insecticide which is banned for use in the food chain. That is where it

:06:50.:06:54.

has ended up on a potentially massive scale.

:06:55.:06:59.

TRANSLATION: You cannot put your eggs on the market for three months.

:07:00.:07:04.

And so I took the decision to kill the animals because it is really too

:07:05.:07:09.

expensive. The company which came to treat the red lights with an organic

:07:10.:07:21.

product really used Fipranol. He is not alone. This farm is in the clear

:07:22.:07:26.

that millions of eggs have now been pulled from supermarket shelves on

:07:27.:07:32.

the continent. Fipranol may be popular for getting rid of fleas on

:07:33.:07:37.

pets but it can be dangerous to humans. Here in the UK, we produce

:07:38.:07:41.

our own eggs but also import them full stop some of the eggs from

:07:42.:07:46.

affected farms have ended up here as well. We're not talking about fresh

:07:47.:07:53.

eggs we buy off supermarket shelves. The affected eggs went into

:07:54.:07:57.

processed foods like sandwich fillings and salads. A few days ago

:07:58.:08:02.

the Food Standards Agency said 21,000 eggs were affected. Today

:08:03.:08:08.

that shot up to 700,000. Sounds a lot but that is just .007% of all

:08:09.:08:16.

the eggs we eat every year. There is no reason why people should avoid

:08:17.:08:20.

eating eggs. Our assessment it is very unlikely it is a public health

:08:21.:08:28.

risk. People need to not have food which contains a substance that

:08:29.:08:33.

should not be there. Four supermarkets of limited number of

:08:34.:08:37.

products as a precaution. Others will already have been consumed. Yet

:08:38.:08:42.

another food scare, highlighting just how complex supply chains can

:08:43.:08:45.

be and how easily problems can spread.

:08:46.:08:47.

Just when you thought the war of words between North Korea

:08:48.:08:50.

and America could not get any more heated Pyonyang has pushed

:08:51.:08:53.

A statement from the dictatorship says it has a plan to launch

:08:54.:08:59.

missiles into the sea around the US Pacific island territory of Guam.

:09:00.:09:02.

Washington has threatened a devastating response.

:09:03.:09:04.

From Guam, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports.

:09:05.:09:11.

It may not look like it but there is trouble in paradise. This little

:09:12.:09:19.

Pacific holiday island is now the focus of unwanted worldwide

:09:20.:09:26.

attention. This is the reason. From North Korea today, this strangely

:09:27.:09:30.

detailed threat. TRANSLATION: The rocket will be

:09:31.:09:36.

launched by the Korean People's Army and will cross the sky above Japan,

:09:37.:09:45.

flying 3356 kilometres for 1065 seconds before hitting the water is

:09:46.:09:54.

30 to 40 kilometres away from qualm. This is the missile. On parade in

:09:55.:09:59.

Pyongyang this spring. No one should doubt it can reach qualm. In recent

:10:00.:10:04.

months, North Korea has successfully tested a host of long-range

:10:05.:10:08.

missiles. But it'll holiday island is now within the reach of Kim Jong

:10:09.:10:14.

Un. At the volleyball court, the locals seem strangely unperturbed. I

:10:15.:10:18.

think we are kind of used to the whole ebb and flow of hearing we're

:10:19.:10:22.

going to be bombed and it not happening and hearing about it

:10:23.:10:26.

again. It is not anything that is new to us. It never follows through,

:10:27.:10:31.

so I was not really concerned. Think it is probably like the distraction

:10:32.:10:37.

maybe, a political kind of move on the side of US and career, just to

:10:38.:10:42.

get attention may be. If the aim of North Korea is to scare people, have

:10:43.:10:47.

a look, it does not seem to be working. People are not cleaned the

:10:48.:10:51.

beaches for the airport. The threat is very specific. That has a few

:10:52.:10:56.

people worried that maybe, just maybe, Kim Jong Un is planning some

:10:57.:11:00.

sort of action to fire one or more missiles over Japan in this

:11:01.:11:05.

direction. Qualm was mighty macro huge military bases are home to a

:11:06.:11:09.

fleet of B-1 bombers. It makes the island are very attractive target.

:11:10.:11:16.

The tourists, on whom this island depends, are always a much more

:11:17.:11:19.

jittery than the locals. TRANSLATION: I saw the news and

:11:20.:11:26.

started to check where the US military bases are located. I am

:11:27.:11:30.

worried. Everyone here is hoping this latest threat is more North

:11:31.:11:34.

Korean bluff. They are also starting to wonder, what that they will do if

:11:35.:11:42.

it is not. -- what will they do if it is not?

:11:43.:11:45.

Police looking for a jogger who knocked a woman into the path

:11:46.:11:48.

of a bus on Putney Bridge in London have arrested a man.

:11:49.:11:51.

Video of the incident was widely distributed on social media

:11:52.:11:53.

A man aged 50 was arrested at property in Chelsea

:11:54.:11:58.

and has been released pending further investigation.

:11:59.:12:06.

The number of people waiting for routine surgery in England

:12:07.:12:08.

in June was the highest since December 2007.

:12:09.:12:13.

NHS England said around 4 million patients were

:12:14.:12:14.

Other key targets were also missed - including urgent

:12:15.:12:18.

He has had his operation but he had to wait a long time for it.

:12:19.:12:27.

Andy waited more than 40 weeks before

:12:28.:12:28.

going into surgery on his foot to relieve serious arthritis.

:12:29.:12:32.

During that long delay, everyday life became

:12:33.:12:37.

I couldn't walk great distances and it was

:12:38.:12:41.

quite painful afterwards, taking an awful lot of painkillers

:12:42.:12:43.

to sort of try and keep the pain down.

:12:44.:12:45.

And although I do IT work and sit at a desk

:12:46.:12:48.

all day, I was finding the middle of the afternoon

:12:49.:12:50.

I had to stop, lie down, put my feet up just

:12:51.:12:53.

because it was too painful to sit any longer.

:12:54.:12:55.

The total waiting list for a routine surgery in England

:12:56.:12:58.

fell back a decade ago after government investment.

:12:59.:13:01.

But in recent years, it has crept back up again

:13:02.:13:03.

and in June, it's estimated to have gone above 4 million.

:13:04.:13:08.

Most worryingly of all perhaps is this is

:13:09.:13:10.

the sign of a trend that is going in the wrong direction.

:13:11.:13:12.

Progressively we are seeing more and more people

:13:13.:13:14.

on the waiting list and with continuing austerity there is no end

:13:15.:13:19.

NHS England argues that more operations are

:13:20.:13:23.

A spokesperson said, more than nine out of ten patients

:13:24.:13:27.

We're working hard to cut long waits and the

:13:28.:13:32.

number of patients waiting over a year the treatment has dropped.

:13:33.:13:37.

Key waiting time performance targets have been missed again but NHS

:13:38.:13:39.

England's leaders are stressing today that in an important aspect of

:13:40.:13:43.

emergency care, progress has been made.

:13:44.:13:46.

That is the treatment of patients with heart failure after

:13:47.:13:49.

A new report shows fewer lives were lost

:13:50.:13:53.

in England and Wales after heart failure,

:13:54.:13:56.

partly because more specialists and new medicines were available in

:13:57.:13:59.

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have also seen

:14:00.:14:03.

rising waiting lists for surgery though with different target

:14:04.:14:07.

Andy's 10-month wait was unusual but more patients

:14:08.:14:11.

around the UK are experiencing longer delays, more pain and

:14:12.:14:13.

Our top story... Modern slavery is in every large town and city. Police

:14:14.:14:39.

say there are thousands of victims. Coming up... I am here at the London

Sportsday on BBC News... Rory McIlroy starts his quest for a

:14:59.:15:07.

on Manchester arena, nine victims 22 people were killed

:15:08.:15:10.

and 116 were hospitalised in the suicide bombing

:15:11.:15:15.

by Salman Abedi on the 22nd of May. They included Robbie Potter

:15:16.:15:20.

and his partner Leonora Ogerio, who were waiting to collect

:15:21.:15:24.

their daughters from the concert. The couple were in the lobby

:15:25.:15:27.

when the bomb exploded. Judith Moritz has been talking

report distressing. I remember everything of that night

:15:33.:15:41.

we went through, everything. It's probably only a 20, 30-second

:15:42.:15:47.

thing, but it feels like an hour. This was Robbie Potter

:15:48.:15:53.

with his girlfriend, Leonora, after the Manchester Arena

:15:54.:15:56.

explosion. They stood next to the attacker

:15:57.:15:58.

and lived to tell the tale. I will never ask his name,

:15:59.:16:03.

I don't want to know his name. There's no point hating a man

:16:04.:16:16.

that's already dead. They had gone to collect

:16:17.:16:18.

their kids from a concert. The children were safe inside

:16:19.:16:24.

but their parents were in the lobby The brightest flash I have

:16:25.:16:26.

ever seen in my life. It was like a cloud

:16:27.:16:33.

of mercury exploding. You see bits of silver flying

:16:34.:16:38.

everywhere, which was obviously the bolts and nuts he'd packed

:16:39.:16:40.

into his bag and his body. My girlfriend went

:16:41.:16:43.

flying, hit the floor. There was a group of four or five

:16:44.:16:45.

kids, I think there were. I just jumped in front of them

:16:46.:16:49.

and told them to follow me, She dived, where she obviously

:16:50.:16:52.

collapsed and fell on the floor, but I found out I'd punctured my

:16:53.:16:58.

lung and had a couple of bolts You came very close

:16:59.:17:01.

to not surviving. Even after the operation,

:17:02.:17:04.

I don't think they thought. This bolt fired from the bomb

:17:05.:17:11.

straight into Robbie's heart. He cheated death

:17:12.:17:16.

by a hair's breadth. You can see the two ribs here,

:17:17.:17:20.

that's the back of the ribs... The bolt was removed with incredible

:17:21.:17:23.

precision by this surgeon It was wedged between the back

:17:24.:17:26.

wall and the front wall of the two blood vessels,

:17:27.:17:30.

so a millimetre either way Thankfully it didn't,

:17:31.:17:32.

but we wouldn't be having this One, two, three, four,

:17:33.:17:39.

I declare a thumb war. Robbie's daughter Tegan

:17:40.:17:49.

was separated from her dad Next time she saw him,

:17:50.:17:51.

he was in a coma. She called him names

:17:52.:17:55.

to try and wake him up. It's just hard to see, with him just

:17:56.:18:01.

lying there, not talking. Tegan said "come on

:18:02.:18:05.

Fathead, it's Peahead." Obviously that's our names

:18:06.:18:20.

we call each other. And as soon as that happened,

:18:21.:18:22.

the eyes just lifted. Robbie's girlfriend Leonora was also

:18:23.:18:25.

badly hurt and sedated in hospital. Waking up, she didn't know

:18:26.:18:31.

what had happened to him. The first question I asked was,

:18:32.:18:35.

where is he, and they said Leonora has multiple fractures

:18:36.:18:39.

to both of her legs. She and Robbie each face many

:18:40.:18:49.

months of rehabilitation. We want to look after each other

:18:50.:18:51.

but we can't do that. We can't do that because we

:18:52.:19:01.

are both on the mend. Before the blast,

:19:02.:19:04.

but to sleep on the streets. This man says he's been homeless

for years, and he believes the main drivers for homelessness are drugs

:21:02.:21:05.

and mental health problems. He now helps those

:21:06.:21:09.

who have nowhere to go. We have new things like legal highs

:21:10.:21:14.

now that are coming out. People who are in chaos,

:21:15.:21:17.

Sir Alan Ayckbourn is one of Britain's most successful

:24:08.:24:20.

playwrights, best known for comic portrayals of the middle classes.

:24:21.:24:23.

Now, aged 78, he's turned to science fiction for the first time.

:24:24.:24:26.

His new play 'The Divide' is co-produced by the Old Vic

:24:27.:24:28.

and premieres at the Edinburgh International Festival tomorrow.

:24:29.:24:30.

It's set 100 years from now, in an England where a deadly

:24:31.:24:33.

contagion has separated men from women.

:24:34.:24:35.

Our Arts Editor Will Gompertz asked the playwright what prompted

:24:36.:24:37.

It was, I think, an attempt by me to bridge my ageing writing

:24:38.:24:43.

personality to a younger generation, and the way to do that, I thought,

:24:44.:24:47.

was through the medium of science fiction.

:24:48.:24:55.

It gives you an even playing field, where you say to your younger

:24:56.:25:03.

audience, "Now this is a world that I don't know but I have

:25:04.:25:06.

created and you don't know, and you can inhabit it."

:25:07.:25:15.

Is it a concern of yours that the theatre is failing

:25:16.:25:18.

If you look in the average audience, maybe because of money but they seem

:25:19.:25:24.

The sort of people I want in there... You can get the very young,

you can catch them before they are ten but after that they are lost

tribe. I want that audience back. where we are considered mature

enough to be possible carriers How do you keep on

:25:52.:25:55.

challenging yourself? How do you make sure, you know,

:25:56.:25:58.

after all these plays you don't find yourself

:25:59.:26:00.

repeating past ideas? That is a real problem

:26:01.:26:02.

because I keep thinking I must have I had a stroke a few years back,

:26:03.:26:06.

and for the first time in my life Then a little germ arrived

:26:07.:26:15.

and I go, wow, they're still manifesting and of course

:26:16.:26:24.

now manifesting furiously. I feel very excited

:26:25.:26:31.

but a little bit nervous. I've written next

to our Arts Editor Will Gompertz. Time for the weather now with Tomasz

:26:47.:27:00.

Schafernaker. Today was a pretty good day across most of the UK but

:27:01.:27:05.

we are starting the weather forecast with some ominous clouds. That means

:27:06.:27:09.

the weather is going little bit downhill tomorrow. The clouds will

:27:10.:27:13.

increase across many parts of the country with rain in the forecast as

:27:14.:27:17.

well. There's an extensive area of cloud across the Atlantic, we are in

:27:18.:27:21.

a window of fine weather which we have got out there right now and

:27:22.:27:25.

this is what it looks like a few hours ago. You can see plenty of

:27:26.:27:30.

weather, scattered fairweather clouds and some showers in the

:27:31.:27:35.

south-east. This evening, dry weather across England and Wales

:27:36.:27:38.

this coming night. By the end of the night we will probably have rain in

:27:39.:27:43.

Northern Ireland, western Scotland and additionally it will turn windy,

:27:44.:27:48.

even gale force winds. This is the low that will be moving across the

:27:49.:27:53.

UK tomorrow. In the evening for many it's not looking too bad. But

:27:54.:27:58.

western areas, with that south-westerly wind blowing off the

:27:59.:28:02.

Atlantic, comes also a big shroud of cloud and spots of rain. Most rain

:28:03.:28:08.

will be light so it is not a wet wet day but it will turn overcast. The

:28:09.:28:12.

south-east might stay dry through most of the day. Into Saturday the

:28:13.:28:17.

weather front moves through, the weather improves, but the morning

:28:18.:28:23.

might be a bit cloudy with drizzle but the afternoon is looking a lot

:28:24.:28:27.

better. Saturday overall a fine day, temperatures more like September to

:28:28.:28:32.

be honest, and much the same on Sunday, but compared to what some of

:28:33.:28:37.

us have had over the last few days we can say Sunday is looking fine.

:28:38.:28:42.

Here is the headline for the weekend, largely dry with sunny

:28:43.:28:45.

spells so finishing on a positive note. That's all from the BBC News

:28:46.:28:50.

at six so it's goodbye from me
