Airdrie taxi driver John McGill admits £2.7m heroin haul

A taxi driver from North Lanarkshire is facing a jail term after being caught with high-purity heroin with a potential street value of £2,785,710.

John McGill, 42, admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug after 6.5 kilos were found at his home in Airdrie on 24 April 2012.

McGill was caught in a cross-border police operation after being tracked in a rented van from England.

His sentence was deferred at the High Court in Edinburgh and bail continued.
