BBC news - Pastor jailed for trafficking people into domestic ''slavery'

A church pastor has been jailed for 11 and a half years after being found guilty of trafficking people 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.

Adeniji told the victims' parents they would have a better life in the UK, but instead viciously beat them if they failed to please her.

The abuse only came to light when one of the victims escaped from Adeniji's home after being beaten.

She was convicted of 17 different counts at Isleworth Crown Court.
