The Cable has exclusively learned from Avon & Somerset Constabulary that police “executed three warrants at properties in the Bristol area in early February in connection with an investigation into Modern Slavery offences linked to employment.”

“Three people – a 73-year-old man, a 44-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman – were arrested on suspicion of holding a person in slavery or servitude. The 73-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of assault.

“All three have been released until 6 June so further enquiries can take place.

“A man in his forties has been referred into a national process set-up to support suspected victims of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking offences, as part of this ongoing investigation.”

The Cable will keep readers informed of developments.
