John and Billy Connors jailed for exploiting workers


Two travellers have been jailed for exploiting vulnerable men to work unpaid on their illegal camp in Hampshire.

Southampton Crown Court heard John Connors and his brother-in-law William "Billy" Connors forced men to live in tents and also beat them.

Hampshire Police discovered the victims when they raided a site in Hamble in June 2011.

The pair were jailed for 40 and 30 months respectively.
