No human remains found in slavery property search

A search for a body in the on-going investigation into alleged slavery has ended without any human remains being found. The search was being conducted at an address in the Peterstone area, near Marshfield on the outskirts of Newport.

Specially trained officers and a forensic archaeologist were acting on information which suggested that the body of an unknown person may have been buried at the site.

One week ago a Polish man was found living in poor conditions after a raid.

A father and his two sons have been remanded in custody charged with slavery offences.
