UK's 'biggest modern slavery network had 400 victims'

A Polish human trafficking gang operating in the UK has been sentenced to more than 55 years in jail.

London (CNN)Members of a human trafficking gang were jailed last week in the UK, described by the trial judge as the biggest modern-day slavery network ever identified in the country.

The gang is thought to have made more than £2 million ($2.5 million) from trafficking its victims from Poland.
Five men and three women, all originally from Poland, were sentenced for a total of more than 55 years. Some had been sentenced in February, but reporting restrictions on the case prevented them being named until last Friday.
