Readers have reacted angrily to the news that a court seized just £520 from a Blackpool gangster who made £1.4 million smuggling drugs.
Scott Ledrew, 31, of Aysgarth Court, Blackpool, was ordered to pay back just £520 as these are the only assets the authorities can seize from him at present.
Several of his associates received even small fines - including one of just £1 for a man who made over £300,000 smuggling drugs.
Readers took to Facebook to share their anger:
"Only goes to prove Crime does pay."
"Nice to see our justice system is working as intended."
"We're in the wrong trade."
"These judges are accountable, something wrong with [their] brains."
"It’s a laugh. That’s apparently all he had. What tosh - I'd have taken everything, and I mean everything, they had!"
