Modern slavery at a traveller site in Little Billington will be explored in tonight’s episode of 24 Hours in Police Custody

‘Invisible Chains’ shows a police raid on the site after reports that a man was being kept as a slave.

Officers carried out the raid in October 2015 and the fly-one-the-wall documentary follows the events of the day.

Talking about modern day slavery, Det Insp Alex House, who features in the episode, said: “There is a drive and a real priority among police forces to put an end to this misery and minimalise the impact it has on human beings.”
