Ten people have been jailed after a long-running investigation by police to tackle North East drug dealing and organised crime.
They were arrested in September last year at homes in Newcastle and North Tyneside as part of 'Operation Wexford', which focused particularly in Walker and Longbenton.
Other areas targeted were Newcastle's west end and supply chains across the region in Cleveland and out to Liverpool.
Between £1.5million and £1.75million worth of drugs was seized during the operation's raids last year - including 5kg of cocaine and over 80kg of amphetamine.
15 men were sentenced for their part in the investigation at Newcastle Crown Court today.
