Beatrice Ekweremadu, 55, and Ike Ekweremadu, 60, have been remanded in custody, the force said. They will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday).

Charges were brought against the pair following an investigation by the Specialist Crime unit.

An investigation was launched in May this year after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation.

A child has now been safeguarded, the Metropolitan Police added.

Organ harvesting is the removing of a person’s body parts, usually for sale on the black market and against the victim’s will.
