Police have confirmed they freed three slaves on October 25, however arrested the suspects today ensuring the facts of the case were correct before making arrests.

Detective Inspector Kevin Hyland from the Metropolitan Police’s Human Trafficking Unit, said “There was a delay in the arrest. This was down to the fact that we had to work very carefully with these people who were highly traumatised and it was very difficult to establish the facts.

“We need professional assistance from outside agencies. The last thing we wanted to do was increase that trauma. Until we had facts to justify where we are now, we delayed that arrest.”
