Three men face jail for selling fentanyl on dark web

Three men face jail after they admitted selling a potentially lethal painkiller over the dark web. Leeds Crown Court heard that the gang sold the drug fentanyl to customers throughout the UK and abroad, even though they knew how lethal it was. It’s said to be a hundred times more potent than morphine and the National Crime Agency has linked it to scores of deaths in the UK, many of them in South Yorkshire.
