Two arrested in Greater Manchester following anti-slavery operation

Greater Manchester Police have rescued 17 people following dawn raids in an anti-slavery operation yesterday [21 November].

Sky News reports five addresses were raided in Greater Manchester, with a further two addresses subsequently searched later. One of the properties is reported as being a takeaway restaurant.

Specialists from Greater Manchester Police and the British Red Cross have supported those rescued. Two men have been arrested on suspicion of offences under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

The raids follow a tip-off officers received in June that a man had been assaulted and trafficked to work in the UK in unacceptable conditions.
