Nineteen women who detectives believe were tricked into working as sex slaves have been removed from a massage parlour in Birmingham.
The women, aged between 19 and 30, were led from Cuddles on Hagley Road on Thursday evening by a special task force of about 25 female officers.
Two men and a woman, from the West Midlands, were arrested.
Twelve of the women are expected to be released but seven will be held pending checks on their immigrations status.
The women are said to come from Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Poland and Turkey.
