The Mirror has revealed there has been child sex grooming going back 40 years in Telford. The true extent of this horror remains unknown at this time, but the Mirror’s investigations show that up to 1000 girls have been victims of this abuse.

Tonight I went to Saint Mary Redcliffe Church to hear a presentation from Andrew Wallis OBE of the Bristol Charity, #Unseen. When we made ‘My Name Is Sorrow’ back in 2012, it was estimated that 27 million people were caught up in human trafficking. Tonight we learned that in 2018, that number has risen to 42.5 million.

Let’s redouble our efforts for the abolition of slavery. Gx

Here’s a Guardian Documentary called ‘On the Road’. It follows the road of bonded sex trafficking, from Nigeria to Italy.

It always surprises me, well by now I know it shouldn’t, but in Italy there’s this road and because the way is marked by the stations of young prostitutes, men seem to think they can treat the women, and young girls as they wish. That it’s some kind of free zone for abuse, with no possibility of conviction or punishment. Let’s change that ‘men’tality! Gx #FreedomCollaborative

Seeing Rachel Movie

Okay, I said I'd let you know how Ben got on at the Cannes International Film Festival, so here we go.

It's great to report that we have interest from a few co...mpanies who want to look at financing the film and who were impressed by our Distribution Prospectus. Of course, as yet I can't let you know which companies, but of course I was mightily thrilled to hear from Ben - just this afternoon - and receive the news. And I was greatly encouraged. Thanks for your continued support.
