British newspaper The Sun published a spreadsheet listing dozens of cocaine dealers in London, U.K., Monday, along with contact information, quality ratings and detailed price information.

The spreadsheet titled “the beak zone,” which refers to the common practice of snorting cocaine through the nose, had been passed around bankers and financial trading offices on encrypted messaging apps, an anonymous whistleblower told The Sun.

“It’s an A to Z for anyone wishing to buy cocaine,” the whistleblower said. “A lot of effort has gone into it. It’s shared in City offices through encrypted social media like Whatsapp.”

The un-redacted spreadsheet includes phone numbers for each dealer and the area of London where they operate.

The most expensive blow, described as the “best in London” is sold by a dealer named Keith for £180 ($232.90) for an eighth of an ounce. A dealer who goes by “Baz” sells the most expensive cocaine at £80 ($103.51) per gram. That cocaine is described as “expensive but good.”

Other drug dealers, like Brixton Boy, Party Dan and Rory Lem Lem, sell products described as “pretty decent,” “Ok” and “Good.”

“Drugs ruin lives and the City of London Police and its partners will do everything we can to bring those involved in the drug trade before the courts,” a spokesman for the London Police told The Sun.

European Union researchers declared London the cocaine capital of Europe in 2016, after testing the sewage in 60 cities for traces of cocaine. London sewage had the highest concentration of cocaine residue per 1,000 residents, the Daily Mail reported.
