Two American drug dealers who distributed cocaine throughout Britain for a Colombian cartel were each jailed for 16 years yesterday at Woolwich Crown Court.

David Lemieux and Thomas O'Donnell, both 41, arrested after the world's biggest international drugs-busting operation, were told they had contributed to the 'problems of addiction, damage to health, and poverty and crime'. Cocaine worth more than pounds 7m had been seized.
