COURT CASE NOTES:

The pair had driven to Thornbury near Bristol where they met Gray and handed over the drugs.

Telecommunications and telematics evidence linked all three men to the area at that time.

Gray was arrested on 9 October as he was about to travel to Dublin, Ireland, and Hoque and Iqbal were arrested together on 12 December at the UK custom controls at the Channel Tunnel in Coquelles, France, as they were travelling in a Belgian registered BMW.

Yesterday (Weds) at Caernarfon Crown Court the trio admitted exporting Class A drugs.

National Crime Agency senior investigating officer Callum Gracey said:

” These drugs would have put vast sums of money back into the hands of criminals who would have reinvested it into more offending.

“Class A drugs are at the centre of violence and misery which blight some of our communities.

“The NCA works closely with partners at home and abroad to fight the Class A drugs threat and to protect the public from the harm drugs cause.”
