Police in Spain say they have smashed a sophisticated network of human traffickers suspected of smuggling Chinese migrants into Europe and the United States.

It follows the arrest of 75 people in raids across Spain and France.

Spanish authorities have released footage of some of the material seized which they claim was used to make false passports.

Police say Spain served as a “travel springboard” and the gang charged between 40 and 50,000 euros for each person, most of whom would end up in Britain or the US.

Some would also end up in prostitution or other sexual exploitation rings.
