In addition to jailing Dung Luu, 39, and Hung Tran, 22, Judge John Holt said he would be recommending to the Home Secretary that both were deported at the end of their sentences.

Ipswich Crown Court heard how the men were arrested in July during a series of police raids on addresses in west Suffolk.
