Five members of the same traveller family have been found guilty of keeping their own private workforce.
William Connors, 52, his wife Mary, 48, their sons John, 29, and James, 20, and their son-in-law Miles Connors, 24, were all convicted of conspiracy to require a person to perform forced
or compulsory labour between April 2010 and March 2011.
The vulnerable men were forced to live in squalor, carry out menial tasks and work in hard and often freezing conditions.
They were frequently homeless, alcoholics or drug addicts and they were used, and abused, as cheap labour for the Connors' paving and patio businesses.
