‘Mod­ern slaves’ saved in in­dus­trial site raid

Metro (UK) - - TALK -

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.
