These pictures showing a pair of vicious drug dealers showing off deadly weaponry proved to be the essential evidence that saw them convicted.

The chilling images showed Tommy Lee Jauncey, 23, and Kane Ingram, 21, posing with a deadly crossbow and a massive serrated sword surrounded by huge amounts of cash.

In one image seen by the court, Ingram holds a thick wad of money against his ear while pretending to be on the phone to the Queen.

The caption reads: "Da queens [sic] ringing she's offering me a room at her finest hotel."

Jauncey is also pictured in what appears to be a garage holding a 3ft-long serrated blade while another shows him holding his ill-gotten gains to the camera.

The pair, of Worcester, admitted conspiracy to supply drugs at Worcester Crown Court.

Jurors heard the gang were locked in a turf war with Luke Bridger over the supply of drugs in Worcester which resulted in his home being attacked with a crossbow.

The court heard Mr Bridger was a "rival dealer" who had talked to Ingram about robbing drug king-pin Asgar Khalfe, 35, and had tried to recruit Ingram.

According to the prosecution, Mr Bridger wanted to "asset strip" Khalfe's business, taking his dealers, his contacts and his customer base.

But when Ingram did not attend a meeting with Mr Bridger the two exchanged personal insults and threats over Facebook Messenger.
