Two men have been arrested in Dewsbury as part of a human trafficking investigation.

Officers yesterday (Wednesday) swooped on addresses in the town, including bed manufacturer Kozeesleep.

They arrested a 30-year-old man and a 59-year-old man in connection with alleged exploitation of migrant workers in Kirklees.

Earlier this year, Janos Orsos and Ferenc Illes were both jailed for human trafficking offences.

Heckmondwike-based Orsos, 43, was locked up for five years and his accomplice Illes, 25, of Dewsbury, was given a three year prison sentence.

Det Sgt Paul Simm, of Kirklees CID, said: “Officers have arrested two men as part of follow-up enquiries following the conclusion of our Operation Tavernhouse investigation into human trafficking earlier this year.

“A lengthy investigation remains ongoing.”
