Members of a drugs gang that flooded the West Country with heroin are tonight beginning jail sentences totalling more than seventy years. Police surveillance uncovered the extent of their dealings and today 16 of the 25 people involved were brought to justice.
The drugs were brought into the region from Liverpool before being distributed here. One of the gang was a grandfather, and three generations of his family were also involved. Seth Conway reports.
