“I came out of prison in 2019, I changed my life. I have (sic) nothing to do with class A drugs, I work hard for my money now.
“I was that (a drug dealer) in the past. I was the biggest asshole you could ever meet… I made the biggest mistake selling drugs and I regret it to this day.”

In one clip, a female customer brags about how she’s paid over £1,200 for energy drink cans, while the shop owner asks her to describe his business as the best in all of Wakefield.
