A SPONSORED walk got under way across Yorkshire today.
It aims to highlight the war on human trafficking.
The Salvation Army in the region is holding the 75-mile walk to help raise awareness of human trafficking and to raise cash to help educate communities and protect people rescued from the trade.
Four teams of between four and six people are taking part in the Put Your Foot Down on Human Trafficking walk, which finishes next Saturday.
Each team will take a different route from starting points in the north, south, east and west of the region.
But all four groups aim to arrive at the same finish line in Castleford.
The teams, made up of volunteers, including representatives from the South and West Yorkshire police forces, will be joined each day by about 20 walkers, who will cover around 14 miles.
Every year 2m people are trafficked. More than 1m of them are children.
Most victims are seeking a better life overseas or are trying to provide for family members back home.
The Salvation Army says the UK is just as affected by the issue as anywhere else.
