‘Modern slaves’ saved in industrial site raid
A GROUP of 11 ‘modern slaves’ have been rescued in a raid on a compound where they were being forced to work.
More than 100 police officers were involved in the operation at Crews Hill in Enfield, north London, with an armoured truck used to gain entry.
Along with arresting three men on suspicion of modern slavery offences, officers have so far uncovered £75,000 in cash as they investigate ‘unregulated distribution of food’ from the site.
The 11 adult ‘slaves’ have been taken away for care and treatment to injuries.
The suspects were being kept in custody at a north London police station.
