Hugh, 29, was sentenced to 11 years. Luke Postians was sentenced to seven years eight months, Nathan Williams eight years four months, Steven Marchant four years, eight months, Nicholas Davies four years and eight months and Gzim Uka five years and four months.

The six were sentenced by Judge Stephen Hopkins at Cardiff Crown Court.
