Shane Carton, drug dealer turned ice cream man

A convicted drug dealer is once again dishing out ice cream to children and unsuspecting parents at one of Northern Ireland's most popular beach destinations despite being exposed by Sunday Life in 2018.

Ex-con Shane Carton had to pay back £127,000 proceeds of his crimes in 2007 after being convicted of selling £50 wraps of highly-addictive cocaine in Coleraine.

And in 2014 he was branded "evasive and untruthful" by a judge during a civil action.
