Traveller family jailed for modern slavery offences

Post  Lamplighter on Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:27 pm

Nine members of a traveller family who kept workers in squalid conditions in caravans have been jailed for modern day slavery offences.


The Rooney family ran a driveway resurfacing business.

One victim, whose ordeal spanned more than 25 years, was made to dig his own grave.

The head of the family, Martin Rooney Senior, was jailed for 10 years, while two of his sons were each jailed for more than 15 years.

The traveller family were described as "chilling in their mercilessness".

The case at Nottingham Crown Court was part of Lincolnshire Police's Operation Pottery investigation, one of the largest investigations of its kind.

The Rooneys' victims were beaten and left without running water or toilet facilities at the Drinsey Nook site in Lincolnshire.    More at link.
