Three men who ran the largest human trafficking ring ever busted in the UK have been convicted of forcing hundreds of desperate people to live and work in appalling conditions.

David Handy, 54 , Mateus Natkowski, 29, and Lukasz Wywrinski, 38, enticed hundreds of people from Poland to the West Midlands with the promise of better lives.

In reality the gang were cramming up to 11 people in two-bed houses and forced them to work – then siphoned off their meagre salaries.

They were convicted in the third trial in what is believed to be Europe’s largest ever modern slavery prosecution.

A three-year police investigation, started in 2015, uncovered a well-organised criminal gang led by the Brzezinski family.

The first of two trials in 2019 led to five conspirators being jailed for a combined total of 35 years.
