Channel 4 has aired a new fly-on-the-wall documentary series which follows a covert investigation into a human trafficking network in Cheltenham.
The first episode of Taken: Hunting the Sex Traffickers aired on Monday 19 July 2021, with the full three-part series now available to watch online via All 4.
The investigative thriller tells the inside story of a secret police investigation by the South West Regional Organised Crime Unit – filmed over three years in Britain, Brazil and Europe as specialist officers attempt to take down the gang’s insidious leader.
Described as a ‘real-life international crime thriller’, the documentary provides a unique insight into the secret police operation, revealing how an anonymous tip off received in Gloucestershire led to a tense three-year investigation.
The next episode of Taken: Hunting the Sex Traffickers is due to air on Channel 4 on Monday 26 July 2021 – or if you can’t wait, the full series is available to stream on All 4.
