Birmingham Mail:

Thirteen people have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery following a series of early morning raids in Birmingham.

Nine men and four women – aged 18 to 60 and all Polish nationals – have been arrested on suspicion of slavery offences and taken into custody for questioning.

This followed simultaneous swoops on residential premises in Handsworth on Thursday morning as part of an investigation into the exploitation of Eastern European workers.
