Istvan Toth, 34 and his brother Peter, 27, both Hungarian nationals, living in Eastbourne, were charged with conspiracy of human trafficking for sexual exploitation into and within the UK.

They were also charged with controlling prostitution for gain.

The pair were arrested by officers from the UKBA's South East Criminal and Financial Investigation team at an address in Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, in October. They are due to appear before magistrates on 22nd December 2012.
