A girl was trafficked from Somalia into the UK to have her organs harvested, it has been revealed.

The case – believed to be the first of its kind in Britain – was revealed in a Government report which found the number of people being smuggled into the UK has risen by more than 50 per cent in the past year.

In total, 371 children were trafficked, including 95 from Vietnam, 67 from Nigeria and 25 from China, according to the review.

The girl’s organs were taken with the intention of selling them to someone requiring a transplant.

Child protection charities warned the shocking case is unlikely to be an isolated incident.

Bharti Patel, the chief executive of Ecpat UK, a charity which campaigns against child sexual exploitation and trafficking, told The Daily Telegraph : “Traffickers are exploiting the demand for organs and the vulnerability of children. It’s unlikely that a trafficker is going to take this risk and bring just one child into the UK. It is likely there was a group.”
