Human trafficking victims forced to work as sex slaves or in cannabis factories will no longer be prosecuted, Police Scotland has promised.

A team of officers dedicated to tackling people smuggling has been set up under the new single police force.

Following the news, Labour MSP Jenny Marra called on the Scottish government to review all convictions where the accused may have been trafficked.

The government said it was working on new laws to crack down on trafficking.
