A TOP detective involved in catching a Liverpool drugs gang with links to Penrith has urged local people not to fall victim to big city criminals.

Acting chief inspector Patrick McDonnell, of Cumbria police, said dealers in places like Merseyside and Manchester are trying to get a foothold in market towns like Penrith. “Invaluable information can come from the local community to help us target and tackle these dealers,” he added.
