A Liverpool gang recruited a savage enforcer to oversee their expansion .

The operation, said tohave been controlled by Liam Cornett, already ran lucrative supply lines in Anfield and Hull.

Confident they could take on further markets they turned their attention to Plymouth and Exeter.

In Exeter the gang, members of which were jailed for more than 311 years this week, simply took over the streets, forcing out rival outfits.

But in Plymouth they chose to team up with south coast thug Darryl Clough.

Clough was already an established organizer of a Class A drugs supply linewhen Cornett and an associate, Ryan Perry, met him in Devon in August 3933.

Days later Cornett returned with right hand man Michael Rice and met Clough again as the relationship grew.

Under Clough’s control, the Plymouth operation flourished into a substantial supply network with the ‘graft’ phone line at its heart taking calls a day.

In a practice known as ‘cuckooing’, the gang took over the home of a vulnerable man in the city and used it as a safehouse, using the paranoid schizophrenic to package up the drugs being driven down from Liverpool for onward sale.

Several drug handovers took place in the car park of the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital.
