Man charged with slavery offences over missing Vietnamese girls

A 28-year-old man has appeared in court charged with two counts of modern-day slavery offences after two Vietnamese teenage girls went missing from York.

North Yorkshire Police said he had been remanded in custody until 17 July.

Police are still searching for the girls, aged 14 and 15, who were last seen near York Minster on Sunday at about 12:30 BST.

Officers believe the pair left the city shortly after the last sighting of them in a taxi.
