Investigators from the Gangmasters and Abuse Authority (GLAA) have visited a takeaway in in response to concerns over living and working conditions.

GLAA officers were joined by Borough Council, North Yorkshire , Immigration Enforcement and North Yorkshire and Rescue Service for the visit on Wednesday 9 September 2020.

Six people safeguarded during the visit have been placed into temporary accommodation.

While several potential indicators of exploitation were noted by officers, no modern slavery offences were identified.

A number of housing and safety issues are being dealt with separately by the council and service.

If you believe someone has been exploited for their labour, please contact the GLAA’s intelligence team on 0800 4320804 or email intelligence@gla.gov.uk with your information.
