British actress Martine McCutcheon is leading a campaign to crack down on child trafficking in the U.K.
The Love Actually star headed to Downing Street in London on Thursday to deliver a petition to British Prime Minister David Cameron calling for improved care and protection for trafficking victims.
The letter was signed by 735,899 people, including stars Ricky Gervais, Sienna Miller, Nicole Kidman and Elizabeth Hurley. The document outlines plans for a guardianship system for young victims.
McCutcheon says, “Hundreds of vulnerable children are trafficked into the U.K. from over 52 countries. Even those who are identified are often left without proper care and support. I believe this is unacceptable.” »
