Ten 'slaves' freed in Wiltshire since police unit set up

Ten people, all believed to be victims of slavery, have been rescued by police in Wiltshire since August after a specialist unit was set up.

Seven were victims of domestic servitude, one of criminal exploitation, and two others were found to be working in a cannabis garden.

Wiltshire Police has arrested three people on suspicion of slavery offences but none have yet been charged.

Operation HEET was set up to increase awareness of human trafficking.
