Twenty-seven people have gone on trial in Romania accused of training children to become criminals and then shipping them to the UK to steal.

Authorities became suspicious after sports cars and lavish houses began appearing in the small and relatively poor town of Tandarei - allegedly the spoils from the illegal trade.

It's thought the gang targeted disabled children in particular, as they would earn more money.

Stephen Cole reports from Miercurea Ciuc, where the trial is taking place.
