Migrant worker exploitation: Brothers arrested in Wisbech

Two brothers have been arrested as part of an investigation into the exploitation of migrant workers in Cambridgeshire.

The men, aged 31 and 35 and from Lithuania, were arrested at separate addresses in Wisbech on Thursday.

They were questioned on suspicion of human trafficking and unlicensed gangmaster activity connected to the harvest of agricultural crops and flower and food processing.

Both have been bailed until June.
