A druglord in jail for flooding the UK with vast amounts of cocaine and cannabis is closely connected with Irish crime boss Christy Kinahan.

Englishman Philip Baron ran a European-wide drug trafficking operation while living in a luxury home near the K-Club, in Straffan, Co Kildare.

Police officers investigating the vast drug operation uncovered strong links with Christy Kinahan. Baron will spend the rest of his life behind bars after pleading guilty to drug smuggling.
