A GANG of 12 alleged drug dealers has appeared in court.

Two people from Stroud were among the accused.

At the hearing at Gloucester Crown Court on Friday, Steven West, 48, of Lawnside Avenue, Nailsworth, and Diane West, 28, of Gloucester Road, Stonehouse, were both charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Steven West admitted the charges, whilst Diane West pleaded not guilty.

Judge Ian Lawrie ruled that the courtrooms at Gloucester are not big enough to host a trial involving so many defendants and the case would have to be transferred to Bristol.

The next hearing will be at Bristol Crown court on October 18, he said.

Also in the dock were:

Lee Fisher 30, of Oak Drive; Kingshill, Dursley who admitted conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Daniel Fisher, 33 of Oak Drive, Kingshill, Dursley; pleaded guilty conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
