THE sentencing of five men after the smashing of a major drugs gang bringing misery to Dorset is a good result for the police – albeit that two of the men are on the run. They conspired to sell nearly £200,000 worth of cocaine to fund a lifestyle that they couldn’t be bothered to pay for legally by earning an honest living.

The results of their handiwork (and of others like them) can be seen on the street of this county every day.

It’s sobering to remember that as they are put away, they’ll replaced by other vermin picking up the work in a trade of misery and death.
