Slaves Held for 15 Years Found in UK

Today in the UK, there were 24 slaves found in horse boxes, dog kennels, and caravans, marking "one of the worst cases of modern day slavery ever discovered."  They had no running water or electricity and some may have been held against their will there for over 15 years. Police know of many who managed to escape the site, but of many who were sold off to work in other countries. The trafficked victims were lured and brought to this site from soup kitchens and other temporary shelters in the city by personnel running this slave-holding site.. Four people are being held responsible for this horrendous act of human trafficking and modern day slavery.
