24 Men Held As Slaves for 15-Years Rescued By Brtish Police North of London

October 5, 2015

The world is so small, yet so big to where as we don't have a clue as to what's going on. This is considering the fact, 24 men were being held as slaves for 15-years before being rescued today.

Police north of London rescued 24 men Sunday who they said were being kept as slaves in filthy conditions at a trailer park site, Sky News reported.

Some of the men, who were in very poor health, had been held captive for as long as 15 years. The captors are suspected of shaving the mens' heads, taking away their cell phones and forcing them to work for free, with hardly any food, and no replacement clothing.

Police said they were alerted to the squalid conditions by 28 people who had escaped the Leighton Buzzard site, 45 miles northwest of London.

The slave camp was reportedly run by Irish travellers, a subset of English and Irish residents who live as modern-day nomads.
