County lines’ drug gang members convicted of Bristol murder

Four men have been given life sentences totalling 122 years for killing a London drug dealer operating out of a Bristol flat. The murder was the culmination of a turf war between two groups running ‘county lines’, where dealers use phone lines to sell drugs not only in their own cities, but in other counties too. The jury was shown dramatic footage of the police chasing the armed attackers through the city, moments after they fatally stabbed 21-year-old Yasin Ahmed.
