The charges, revealed by police only moments ago, follow the dramatic dawn raids in Worcester yesterday (Thursday).

The defendants are Kamal Liban, 19, Abdlmahad Adow, 20, Abdirahim Said 20, and Adem Benmessahel, 18, all from London.

West Mercia Police confirmed moments ago, after talks with the CPS, that three Somalian males and one French male have been charged with conspiracy to supply heroin, conspiracy to supply cocaine, being concerned in the supply of heroin and being concerned in the supply of cocaine.

All four have been remanded in custody and are to appear at Worcester Magistrates Court tomorrow (Saturday).
