Drug dealers who trafficked £1.3 million of cocaine between Northampton and Hampshire have been jailed for a combined total of more than 100 years.

Joseph O’Neill, who owns Ice Lounge in Northampton, has been jailed for 20 years after he was convicted of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs following a nine-week trial at Leicester Crown Court in October and November.

The court heard that O’Neill was the head of a criminal gang in Northamptonshire that sourced an estimated 28kg of high purity cocaine from Cambridgeshire-based criminals that was then sold to an organised crime group on the south coast.
