More than 200 potential modern slaves found on family-run flower farm in UK

Flower-picking is among the seasonal trades known to be at risk of modern slavery in the UK. Bosahan Farm, a family-run farm, is famous for its daffodils, which have been featured in the local press and at a church festival.

It is understood that hundreds of migrant workers arrive every year for the local flower season. In February, police raided the property and discovered mostly male migrants from Eastern Europe living in caravans on the site. Two men aged 41 and 61 have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery offences. More
