Six charged with human trafficking offences

Six people have been charged with human trafficking following a series of raids in Derby.

Eleven potential victims were found by police at properties across the city on Monday.

Three men and three women have each been charged with human trafficking into and within the UK.

They are due to appear at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court later. A 41-year-old woman has been released on bail.

The men discovered in the raids were taken to a reception centre set up by Derbyshire County Council, Derby City Council, the Salvation Army and the Red Cross.

Detectives are working with the Department for Work and Pensions and the Gangmasters Licensing Authority as part of the investigation.
