Three Brits Arrested for Using Slaves at Construction Sites

Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery offences after a police raid involving 100 officers.

Police found eight people, believed to be victims of modern slavery, in a raid on a residential property in Love Lane, Iver, Buckinghamshire.

The operation followed allegations made about forced labour being used at building sites.

Two men, aged 49 and 42, and a woman, 28, all from Iver, were arrested.

They remain in police custody.

The signs of modern slavery aren’t always obvious but there are some that you may notice. These include people being withdrawn, unable to make eye contact, or being reluctant to talk to strangers.

Their appearance may be unkempt, they may be malnourished, or showing signs of physical or psychological injury.

They may also have inappropriate clothing or equipment for their job, be working long hours for little or no pay.

Their accommodation may be overcrowded and poorly maintained.
