A HUDDERSFIELD man is on trial for being part of one of the UK's biggest drug smuggling rings.
Michael Small, of Spaines Road, Fartown, was arrested after the UK's largest seizure of crack cocaine worth £1m at a house in Clapham, south London.
The 37-year-old was arrested along with suspects from Bradford, Liverpool and London.
Officers from the National Crime Squad uncovered a group using a network of couriers and the international postal system.
The network stretched from the UK to Jamaica, Nicaragua, Mexico, Grenada and Panama.
Opening the case at Kingston Crown Court in London against seven people charged with conspiracy to supply and import Class A drugs over a period of more than four years, prosecutor Hugh Davies told the jury that the haul represented just one night's work for the gang.
The seven were arrested following raids which netted 10.9 kilos of cocaine at a house in Clapham .
The accused along with Small are Lincoln White, 39, from south London; Errol Williams, 30, from Brixton, Robert Sangster, 39, from Dulwich; Julio Vispo, 36, from Streatham; Maxine Hemmings, 39 from Mitcham,and Janet Scott, 41, from Lewisham, all deny conspiracy to import Class A drugs and one of conspiracy to supply.
Yuleane Tulloch of Clapham, had already pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to supply illegal drugs. Philip Hearsum 51, of Bradford, Kemi Osagie 21, and Natasha Osagie 20, both from Liverpool, have also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to import Class A drugs.
