But the pair, who are both originally from Lithuania, changed their pleas to guilty late yesterday afternoon, ahead of the start of a case that was expected to last for four weeks.

They admitted acting as unlicensed gangmasters for a number of people who had come to Wisbech from Lithuania between 2012 and 2014.

They are due to be sentenced later today.
