ONE of the three men arrrested following a raid on a Manaccan farm house yesterday in connection with modern slavery allegations has been released under investigation.

The release follows protests outside Camborne police station last night by around 100 migrant workers who said they were not slaves. They applauded the release of the single man.

The men were arrested at at Bosahan Farm, a flower picking farm near Manaccan, on suspicion of modern slavery offences on Thursday and one man was taken into custody on suspicion of gangmaster offences.

Specialist officers executed the warrant on the suspicion that modern slavery offences were taking place against migrant workers. 

About 200 workers live on the farm, in Manaccan, and 14 of them opted to receive help from a national scheme.

Talking about the protest Shaun Sawyer, Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police told BBC Cornwall said of the protest: "it's good, legitimate democracy".

"Why wouldn't those who don't understand want to go to a British police station and express their views very legitimately? I think that is democracy."
