A man is facing jail after he admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply and also admitted possessing crack-cocaine with intent to supply.

Mr Smith added: “He realises the inevitability of a custodial sentence and asks to be sentenced sooner rather than later.”

Judge Rachael Harrison adjourned the case for a pre-sentence report to be considered before the next hearing on May 18.

She also requested an explanation from the Crown Prosecution Service for the delay in the case after the offences were originally committed in March, 2018.
