pounds 6m drug gang swoop.

A pounds 6 million-a-year heroin gang, who allegedly murdered two people and used children to sell the drugs on street corners, has been seized by cops.

Now 48 people have been charged in America including 40 of the gang nicknamed the Champion Crew. The rest are still at large in New York and in other states, and at least one has fled the country.

The gang sold the drugs under chilling brand names like Body Bag, Blood Money and Dead Presidents. The names changed every time cops broke up the operation.

The gang members could face life if convicted.
