Five members of a traveller family have been sentenced to a total of almost 19 years in prison for luring vulnerable men off the streets and forcing them into hard labour.
The Connors family enjoyed top-of-the-range cars and expensive holidays - while the workers lived in squalor on caravan sites in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Cheltenham, getting little or no pay.
Today a judge said they had exploited their victims' vulnerability for their own commercial gain. Rebecca Broxton was at Bristol Crown Court.
