Three women have been "rescued" from a house in south London as police investigate claims they were held as slaves for about 30 years.

Police arrested two suspects, a 67-year-old man and a 67-year-old woman.

Last month, officers were contacted by Freedom Charity, after it received a call from a woman saying she had been held against her will for decades.

Aneeta Prem, the founder of Freedom Charity, said the women were now in a place of safety.

"It's a story of great hope," she said.
