"A couple from Eastern Europe paid another Yorkshire agency £250 for an "introduction to work" in the Humber port of Goole, where they were underpaid and slept in a dormitory shared with eight men.† "When they said that they were going to tell the police, their savings of £200 were stolen and the woman was threatened with violence." says the report.† "They estimated that there were at least another 800 people in the area living and working in the same circumstances."
