This is the estate where a millionaire traveller family kept 18 homeless men as slaves in squalid conditions for decades.

The Rooney family - dubbed 'The Rooney Lynch Mob' in court - have been jailed for a total of 79 years after profiting by more than £1.5million from the exploitation.

They splashed out on holidays in Barbados and Mexico, sports cars, cosmetic surgery and even a place on a Manchester United soccer school course.

But their victims were forced to live in horrendous conditions in stinking, filthy caravans and kept under 'total control' through threats of violence, along with drugs and alcohol.
