The arrests were made yesterday morning, Wednesday April 2, as part of a joint operation between Norfolk Police, Suffolk Police and the Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA).

A warrant was executed in Great Yarmouth which resulted in the arrest of three men and a woman. The men, aged 29, 32 and 33 and all from the town, were arrested on suspicion of trafficking and unlicensed supply of workers. The workers were involved in vegetable processing.

A 22-year-old woman, also from Great Yarmouth, was arrested on suspicion of money-laundering.

All four were taken to the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre where they were interviewed by officers.

In Suffolk, police arrested a 29-year-old man from Bury St Edmunds and a 37-year-old woman from Ipswich, also on suspicion of trafficking and supplying unlicensed workers.

Both were taken to the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where they were questioned.

All six have now been bailed to return to police on Thursday, May 29, pending further enquiries.

If anyone suspects someone of being involved in people trafficking they are asked to contact police immediately on 101.
