Three women rescued from 'slavery' after 30 years in London home - police

Three “deeply traumatized” women were rescued from a London house where they were believed to have been held captive for more than 30 years in a “barbaric” ordeal, authorities said Thursday.
One of the alleged victims, a 30-year-old British woman, is believed to have been living in the house all her life with no contact with the outside world, police said.
“We have never seen anything of this magnitude before,” Detective Inspector Kevin Hyland, from the Metropolitan Police’s Human Trafficking Unit, told a press conference on Thursday.
The Met said in an earlier statement that a man and a woman, both 67, were arrested at the house in Lambeth, South London, “as part of an investigation into slavery and domestic servitude.”
