Sisters are jailed over drugs ring.

Byline: JON HARRIS

THREE sisters have been unmasked as the heads of a drug dealing ring which police claimed was the biggest of its kind in their home town.

Katrina Queen, 26, Fiona, 24, and Samantha, 19 - both single mums - sold cannabis to up to 25 customers a day over two years.

Burnley Crown Court heard there was a "deeply entrenched culture of cannabis use" in the family, with Sam smoking drugs from the age of 12.

Pregnant Katrina was jailed for three years and Sam 18 months. Fiona was given a community order. They pleaded guilty to dealing in Accrington, Lancs. Judge Graham Knowles told them: "You all committed these offences with your eyes wide open."
