Six people arrested on suspicion of human trafficking offences remain in custody

Posted on 13th September 2017

Six people arrested on suspicion of human trafficking offences remain in custody this morning.

We executed warrants at five houses in Derby in the early hours of yesterday morning, finding ten potential victims.

The ten men, who we believe to have been trafficked into the UK from Latvia, are being supported by partner agencies.

The arrested men, aged 32, 41 and 53 and women, aged 31, 35 and 54, are still in custody this morning and are being questioned by detectives.
