Spanish police have uncovered a secret sweatshop factory in the Los Cipreses area of Malaga, press reports said.

The unnamed textile factory on Calle Guinda was allegedly run by illegal Chinese workers.
 
Police arrested two people said to be in charge of the factory and five workers. According to a police statement cited in the press, sewing machines were heard from the factory 24 hours a day.

One worker was reported as saying he was not allowed to leave the premises to sleep and had been working eleven-hour days without payment.
