The Hunt for Britain’s Slave Gangs
This Panorama special follows West Midlands Police as they bring down the biggest human slavery operation that has ever been caught in the UK.
Thousands of people across Britain are being forced into human slavery by ruthless gangs. This Panorama special follows West Midlands Police as they bring down the biggest gang that’s ever been caught here. The gang held hundreds of people captive, set them to work, stole their wages, made them eat from skips, wash in canals and threatened to kill them if they tried to escape. The programme hears unique first-hand testimony from slaves who have waived their lifelong right to anonymity so they can tell their stories. It also features exclusive access to the police and legal team who have spent more than four years bringing gang members to justice.
