Police have sent text messages to two thousand customers of an Albanian drugs gang that supplied cocaine to people working in London's financial centre.

The messages offer advice and support for dealing with substance abuse and were sent to phone numbers seized from an Albanian organised crime network.

In the messages it is explained that dealers connected to the phone had been arrested and they were being contacted to offer help, The Times reported.

A link was embedded into the messages offering advice and support and police say it has been clicked on 1,939 times – 1,852 of those from phones in the UK.

The City of London Police tracked 12 Albanians who were caught with 1.2kg of cocaine worth £144,000, fake identity documents and £20,000 in cash.
