A Bradford man, who was the ringleader in a conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine, has been jailed for eight years.

Seven people involved in the conspiracy were jailed for a total of nearly 30 years.

Wajid Ali, 28, of Thursby Street, Barkerend, (pictured) had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs. He was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court yesterday.

Ali recruited drug users to collect heroin and crack from Bradford and sell it on the streets of Harrogate, Starbeck, Knaresborough and the surrounding areas on a daily basis.

Hasnain Abbas, 23, of Leeds Road, Eccleshill, Bradford, who pleaded guilty to money laundering, was given a 12-month community order and instructed to complete 180 hours of unpaid work.

Abbas was in possession of cash from drugs sales and a drugs debt list when he was arrested during a rendezvous with his co-conspirators.
