TWO men have been jailed for trafficking two young Latvian women into the UK for sexual exploitation – the first conviction of its kind in Derbyshire.

The 17-year-old and 25-year-old women believed they were visiting London for a weekend with a Latvian man they had met on a sex website.

But when the women and the man arrived at Gatwick Airport, Tajinder Singh and Gurdeep Singh were there to meet them and drove them to Ripley, where they were first taken to a kebab shop and then to the Premier Inn off the A610.

Police broke up the scam after two days in October last year, when hotel staff alerted them to suspicious activity.

Derby Crown Court heard that Tajinder Singh, 33, and Gurdeep Singh, 52, had arranged and paid for the women to come to the UK from Latvian capital Riga.

They had also transferred money into the Latvian man’s bank account.

The older woman was sexually assaulted in the hotel by Kulvinder Gill, who ran the kebab shop, which was owned by Tajinder Singh and Gurdeep Singh.
