Three years for would-be cocaine dealer

THREE years in prison is the sentence handed to a would-be Weston drug dealer.

Daniel Fawcett appeared at Bristol Crown Court to plead guilty to a single charge of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply.

He admitted the offence after police found cocaine and cash in a room he was living in last August.

The 23-year-old was ordered to spend three years in jail, less one day he spent on remand awaiting sentence.
