A 17-year-old suspected illegal immigrant has been arrested at a nail bar in Marlborough.
The boy was arrested in a nail bar on the high street by police officers carrying out proactive patrols targeting modern slavery in the town yesterday afternoon, Tuesday 19 September.
A 34-year-old woman at the premises was also arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.
Both suspects were taken to Melksham custody where they remain for questioning.
PC Emily Grigor, Wiltshire East Community Coordinator, said “These arrests were made as a result of proactive patrols by officers who have been specifically looking out for signs of modern slavery.
“This is a great piece of work by local Community Policing Team officers, and it further emphasises the importance of officers and members of the public recognising the signs of modern slavery.”
