A woman has been arrested on modern slavery charges after an Altrincham massage parlour was closed down.
The woman, 51, has been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery offences.
A notice posted on the boarded-up door of Sakura, a former massage parlour on Stamford New Road, states that Trafford Council has been granted a closure order because Manchester Magistrates' Court was satisfied that "a person has engaged... in disorderly, offensive or criminal behaviour".
It also stated that the premises had caused "serious nuisance to members of the public".
The closure order is in place for a period of three months, until November 24th.
A second business connected to the woman, Palm 410 on Barton Road in Stretford, was found to be 'offering sexual services for money'.
The two businesses were closed down as part of Operation Avro, which targets neighbourhood crime in Greater Manchester.
A spokesperson for Trafford Council said: “Trafford Council’s Community Safety and Environmental Health officers and Greater Manchester Police carried out a raid on the premises on August 24 after complaints from members of the public that the property was being used for unlawful purposes.
“We applied for – and were granted - a full closure order under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 on the grounds that the persons occupying the premises have engaged in criminal behaviour and that the use of the premises has resulted in a serious nuisance to members of the public.
“Trafford Council will continue to work with partner agencies to crack down on criminal behaviour within our communities.”
