Four people have been arrested for immigration offences in Melksham.
Officers attended Chop Suey House, Bath Road on Monday (16 October) afternoon following some intelligence in the summer over who might be living there.
Four people were found to be illegally working in the kitchen and have been taken to Gablecross Police Station where they will be dealt with by Immigration.
Sgt Gemma Rutter said: “We need the public to be our eyes and ears for spotting something that doesn’t look right. People who are in the UK illegally are vulnerable and may be here by human trafficking or be victims of modern slavery.
“Each case is different, and may not fit the stereotype of seeing groups of people being forced to work in fields or on fishing boats.
“Victims might look helpless and afraid, but they can also seem to accept their situation, be completely unaware of it, or even defend the people who are exploiting them.
“If you see something that doesn’t look right get in touch with us and we can investigate what is going on.”
