PUBLISHED: 11:24 12 April 2011

A lANDLADY is angry her Bradwell home was filmed by TV crews involved with a police investigation into human trafficking.

Linda Pye, who lives in London, was upset TV hardman Ross Kemp and crews from Sky TV had not asked for permission to film her home when police carried out raids in October.

She has contacted Sky about the matter and said she was not aware of any illegal activities taking place at her house.

She added: “We were not aware of anything going on. We did not give permission for Sky to go in and do this.

“It was a shock for us to sit there watching the TV and say ‘hello, what is this? This is our house,’” Mrs Pye added.

Warrants were executed at eight properties across Great Yarmouth and the village of Bradwell, with ten arrests for people trafficking, under a major investigation named Operation Feed.

Norfolk Police Det Insp Rickie Botwright led the raids, which involved 40 officers and was the culmination of 10 months work.

At the Bradwell raid, police were joined by Mr Kemp as a part of filming for his new series.

The former EastEnder was there with film crew to see police make arrests as part of Ross Kemp’s Extreme World.
