Gangs in Belfast have been involved in people smuggling and human trafficking.
Although the vice industry was previously mostly on the street, in recent years it has moved indoors to residential homes and hotels and formed closer links to organised crime networks.
Trafficking gangs in Belfast, as in the rest of Northern Ireland, tend to be of Chinese or Eastern European origin, utilising local people as facilitators in their network.

The new connecting railway between Birmingham and London meant they could target the racecourse riches of the country's capital.
