Six people arrested as part of an anti-slavery and human trafficking operation have been released on bail. A seventh remains in custody.
The arrests came after a series of raids at various locations - including three travellers sites - in South Gloucestershire and Bristol.
The raids were carried out at three travellers' sites near Bristol - Northwood Park in Winterbourne, Tall Trees in Almondsbury and Green Orchard in Easter Compton.
A farm in Yeovil, a house in Kingswood and a residential property in Redland were also raided in the operation.
The police say that three men have been taken to a place of safety.
