The three were part of a 22-strong gang of 19 men and three women who between them ran nine drugs lines in Waltham Forest.

The 22 were arrested following an intelligence-led operation, codenamed Operation Nieuport, targeting violent offenders and gang activity in east London.

During the course of the raids, drugs were seized, along with cash, mobile phone handsets, a handgun, a Samurai sword, three machetes and a can of pepper spray.

Most of the defendants pleaded guilty and were sentenced between October 2018 and March.
