Cocaine smuggling gang jailed

Dock worker Shaun Wilson knew how to bypass security procedures

Five men from London and two from Essex have been jailed for attempting to smuggle cocaine into the UK through Portsmouth Docks. Two crime groups enlisted the help of a corrupt dock worker Shaun Wilson to carry out their plan. He knew how to bypass security procedures. However, the National Crime Agency had Wilson under surveillance. It took four years for investigators to bring all the smugglers to trial.
