'Slaves' speak of their ordeal at travellers' site

Two men who claim they were kept as virtual slaves on a travellers' site in Bedfordshire, have been speaking to BBC News about their ordeal for the first time.

The men spent months at the Greenacres site, but they had escaped before police raided it over the weekend.

They claim others had been trapped there for years.

On Tuesday four men appeared in court charged with enslaving a number of people.

Alison Holt reports.
