Three arrested in GLAA raids in County Durham

Three people were arrested yesterday in Ferryhill, County Durham on suspicion of offences under the Modern Slavery Act.

The raids carried out in the early hours of 29 November are the first of their kind across the County Durham and Darlington area.

According to the Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA), the victims were removed to a reception centre run in partnership with The Salvation Army, British Red Cross, The National Crime Agency and Durham County Council. 

In a statement, the GLAA said it “will be working with victims during the course of the next few days to build their trust and to make an assessment of their needs within a safe environment”.
