Take a look at who has been put behind bars over the last seven days- a drug dealer, a people smuggler and two men in their 20s involved in using “rambo-style” knives.

Patricia Ferreira

A woman who attempted to smuggle a family through a Harwich Port in a campervan has been jailed for two and a half years.

The sentencing of Patricia Ferreira, of no fixed address, took place at Chelmsford Crown Court this week after Ferreira, who admitted the people smuggling charge, failed to appear in court in November last year.

The charges related to an incident in February, 2016- where Portugese Ferreira, and co-conspirator Skelly Monpierre, tried to smuggle an Iraqi family inside a locked rear luggage compartment of a campervan into the country.
