Police investigating sex allegations against controversial social media influencer Andrew Tate and his brother have carried out fresh raids across Romania.
In a series of swoops across Bucharest and elsewhere in Romania, police seized paperwork and computer equipment from various properties said to be connected to Tate and his brother Tristan.
It comes as media in the country reported that the British consul had visited the brothers in the prison where they are being held following their arrest last month.
They were held as part of a huge investigation into claims that several women had been trafficked and raped by Luton born Tate and his brother as part of an organised criminal empire.
