Smuggling convictions after drugs raids

A firefighter commended for his work in the 7 July London bombings has been jailed for 14 years for smuggling 110kg of cocaine into the UK.

Simon Ford, 41, was one of 33 people convicted for being part of a £80m drugs and money laundering operation.

It followed a series of raids by police on properties in London, Surrey, Kent and Hertfordshire in 2008.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
