A church pastor has been jailed for 11 and a half years after being found guilty of trafficking children into the UK for use as domestic "slaves" at her home in Barking, east London.
Lucy Adeniji brought two children and a 21-year-old woman to the UK from Africa illegally and used them as servants. She was convicted of 17 different counts at Isleworth Crown Court.
The mother-of-five is the first person to be jailed for trafficking children into the UK for domestic servitude. She smuggled the three victims into Britain on false passports, and used them as servants at her home in Ray Gardens, Barking.
