Holographic card campaign aims to raise awareness of exploitation

Pocket-sized holographic cards are being distributed to young people across Merseyside to increase awareness of the warning signs of exploitation and trafficking.

The cards have been produced by Merseyside's Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell in partnership with charity Stop the Traffik.

The business-sized cards ask young people to think, 'would you know if your friend was in trouble?'

They then shimmer to reveal the answer that 'exploitation can be hidden in plain sight'.

A QR code on the back directs young people directly to the Stop the Traffik website, which contains extensive information about modern slavery and human trafficking.

The cards have already been handed out to student teachers at Liverpool John Moores University following a seminar about the issue of modern slavery.

They are also being shared with local youth centres and community centres and are being distributed by volunteers at coffee shops and other venues across the city.

Changes to COVID test rules

People in England who receive a positive rapid lateral flow test result for coronavirus and do not have any symptoms will no longer need to take a follow-up PCR test.

If you do test positive, though, you must still self-isolate immediately and report your result online.
