The UK Border Agency reports that three Indian men have been arrested by immigration officers, in conjunction with Northamptonshire Police, in Kettering as part of an investigation into suspected labour or human trafficking.

Twenty-two Northamptonshire police officers, led by immigration officers from the East Midlands immigration crime team, executed warrants this week at the Royal Hotel in Market Place and the George Hotel in Sheep Street.

Three Indian men – aged 32, 36 and 36 – were all arrested on suspicion of labour trafficking offences.

It is believed 2 suspected trafficking victims – both Indian men – were working under duress, against their will, in harsh conditions. They have been taken to a place of safety.

Sam Bullimore, assistant director, UK Border Agency said:

‘Human trafficking is a brutal form of organised crime and combating it is a key priority. Working with our law enforcement partners we are determined to create a hostile environment for those who prey on vulnerable immigrants and take action against them.’

The operation comes as the UK Border Agency leads a month-long crackdown on organised immigration crime.
