A Nailsea man has been jailed for two years for his role in drug dealing across Somerset.

Alan Turner, aged 46, was arrested in July on suspicion of supplying class A drugs and has now been sentenced.

Turner, of North Street, was one of 19 drug dealers jailed for more than 50 years collectively following a nine-month sting by Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

A further nine people received suspended sentences of community orders, including 34-year-old John Carr of Elm Walk in Yatton. He was handed a 24-month sentence, suspended for two years.

Raids were carried out in Chard, Cheddar, Crewkerne, Nailsea, Sherborne, Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Yeovil over the summer.
