A DRUG dealer has been jailed for peddling deadly heroin in Chesterfield town centre.

Police were tipped off about Mark Nicholls and caught him in the act near The Chesterfield Hotel on Malkin Street in September last year.

Staff monitoring CCTV had been watching Nicholls and, when police arrived, they found him with two wraps of heroin and £170 in cash.

Nicholls, of Churston Road, Brampton, was jailed for two years after admitting supplying a Class A drug and possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.
