Detective Chief Inspector Alan Mason, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: "These sentences have been the result of painstaking and methodical police work to disrupt the activity of two criminal networks in different parts of the country.
"These individuals had conspired to source heroin from suppliers in Liverpool for sale on the streets of Nottingham in order to make substantial profits.
"It is well-known how devastating heroin can be not just for the users, but for families and entire communities.
"Thanks to excellent co-operation between the East Midlands Special Operations Unit and colleagues in the Merseyside and Staffordshire police forces we have, together, stopped this particular heroin supply network in its tracks.
"What's more, we have been able to present the evidence needed to compel the defendants to admit their crime for which they will now serve significant terms of imprisonment."
