Craigslist sales of cocaine and stolen passports exposed
Secret filming shows how an undercover BBC reporter was able to buy Class A drugs listed on the website Craigslist.
Jonathan Gibson bought cocaine from a dealer in Derby, illegal cigarettes from men in Corby and Carlisle, and was offered a stolen passport from a man in Chatham, Kent. Such items are supposedly prohibited from being offered in classified advertisements on the site.
Craigslist was contacted by the BBC but has declined to comment.
