TWO Lithuanian men have been arrested in Swindon on suspicion of human trafficking.

EIGHT men and women, all suspected victims of exploitation, were found following raids at three separate locations in the town yesterday.

Det Sgt Rob Findlay of the human exploitation team at Wiltshire Police said: “Human trafficking and sexual exploitation are abhorrent crimes which see people being used as commodities – traded between others, usually for financial gain.

“The victims, who are now in our care following these raids, will now be given the full support from Wiltshire Police.”
