Lethal drugs exported from driving school

Drugs used for lethal injections in the US were supplied by a pharmaceutical company run from the back of a driving school in Acton, London, it was revealed yesterday.

Dream Pharma exported drugs to Arizona State Prison at a cost of £4,528 (€5,384).

Legal charity Reprieve said this was enough to kill at least 10 prisoners, and it called for urgent action to ban the export of drugs used in executions.
