The police said: "The police were contacted in October by Free Charity after receiving a call from a woman claiming that she had been held against her will in a house in London for over 30 years. New investigations by the police revealed the location of the house and, through the delicate negotiations conducted by the charity, the three women, a 69-year-old woman. Malaysian woman, 57 years old Irish woman and 30 years Columbia woman, have all been saved. "

The three women were reportedly held in captivity by two 67-year-old men, a man and a woman, who were arrested and released on bail until January. The 30-year-old woman has "no contact with the outside world," police said.

Police have described it as the worst case of slavery in Britain.

Freedom Charity, the non-profit association that reported the case to the police, was contacted by the Irish woman who had seen a documentary about ITV on forced marriages. A week after the call and after new police investigations, the women were released.

Detective Inspector Kevin Hyland, of the Metropolitan Police's Human Trafficking Unit, said they had "never seen anything of this magnitude before" and that the women were "extremely traumatized".
