The ringleaders of a Liverpool-based gang that supplied tens of millions of pounds of cocaine and heroin to the streets of Glasgow have been jailed.

Father and son Christopher Welsh Snr, 55, of Regal Walk and Christopher Welsh Jnr, 34, of Payley Close, led the plot, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

A further seven members of the gang were jailed, with 21 more due to be sentenced in the next few days.
