CCTV footage has been released by West Midlands Police showing drug users flocking after a dealer's car in scenes described by police as "excited children pouncing on an ice-cream van".

Within 16 seconds of footage, around 30 addicts run after a drug dealer's car as he pulls into a Bordesley Green street next to a children's nursery.

It prompted a police investigation, appropriately named Operation No Deal, wich resulted in 29 men being jailed for a total of more than 100 years for drug supply offences.
