Lincolnshire slavery raids: Eighth man arrested

An eighth man has been arrested on suspicion of slavery offences after raids in Lincolnshire and two other locations this week.

Five men aged between 21 and 52 and a 53-year-old woman have been bailed, and an 18-year-old man arrested on suspicion of obstruction was released without charge.

A 28-year-old man was arrested this morning, Lincolnshire Police said.

Seven alleged victims, aged between 19 and 48, are being assessed by doctors.

Raids were carried out on Monday at five locations around Lincoln, another site in the East Midlands and a location near London, by neighbouring police forces and the National Crime Agency.
