Nine men who helped play a part in turning Ilford station into an open market for drug dealing last year will be sentenced at Blackfrairs Crown Court this morning.

Abdul Boota, 18, of Fairlop Road, Leytonstone, and Klevis Locaj, 20, of no fixed address, were found guilty of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs, namely heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis on March 1 after a three week trial.

Today they join seven other drug dealers, all of whom pleaded guilty before trial, in learning their fate.
