An alleged multi-million euro people-smuggling ring, believed to have brought up to 200,000 people to Britain, has been dismantled say police.

As many as 19 people were arrested in raids in London and in Lincolnshire in eastern England. Police said the illegal immigrants paid between four and seven thousand euros to be smuggled from the Kurdish areas of Turkey. The operation involved officers from six European countries.
