4 arrested in large British slavery investigation
LONDON (AP) - Welsh police have arrested four people and are combing the grounds of a stable outside the capital city of Cardiff, hunting for a body in a long-running slavery investigation.
Gwent Police said in a statement more than 100 officers are involved in searching the yard, as well as two other addresses in Cardiff and the small Welsh village of Penhow. Those arrested were between the ages of 36 and 66.
The force said on Tuesday it was acting on suspicion that people were being kept in poor conditions at the site "and forced to work for no pay".
The investigation follows the discovery of Mr Darrell Simester, 43, who was found living at the site after having been missing for 13 years.
