A cocaine kingpin involved in a major drugs trafficking conspiracy was brought down by a mural of UFC superstar Conor McGregor painted on his wall.

Ryan Palin, 36, was found guilty of conspiracy to supply 700kg of cocaine, 15kg of heroin and 40kg of amphetamines .

Palin was identified as the man behind '' by the Conor McGregor mural, painted at his home address in Mereworth, Caldy, after detectives found pictures of it on his EncroChat device. Despite the seemingly overwhelming evidence, Palin still argued he was not the man behind the handle.

His home was raided on Thursday, December 9 last year, where officers found the trappings of a luxury lifestyle including designer clothing worth £136,000 and watches worth £129,000.

According to Merseyside Police, Palin’s arrest formed part of an operation involving European law enforcement agencies working with the National Crime Agency (NCA), and supported across the UK by police forces and Regional Organised Crime Units.
