There has been a series of raids around Teesside :: Probe launched after victim told of terrifying sex trade between Teesside and Sheffield
Four more men have been arrested after a major operation into human trafficking.
It follows huge co-ordinated raids involving 150 police officers last week which saw seven houses in Stockton targeted and nine men arrested, along with one in Sheffield.
The operation was launched after a vulnerable young victim made allegations about the terrifying trade between Teesside and South Yorkshire in which victims were trafficked and sexually abused.
It’s believed that victims have been raped by a number of men after being driven to homes around Teesside.
