Akinola was charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin, being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and possession of criminal property.

On Friday (15 March) the pair appeared at Peterborough Crown Court following guilty pleas being entered at a previous hearing.

Sereaton was sentenced to four years in prison, while Akinola was sentenced to a two-year community order and must complete 80 hours of unpaid work.

PC Matt Smith, from the southern Impact Team, said: “Tackling drug dealing in Cambridge remains to be a priority for local policing teams, which is why I would encourage members of the public to continue to pass on any information in relation to this crime.

“The more information we have, no matter how small it may seem, helps us piece together a much bigger picture which allows us to disrupt criminals such as Sereaton and Akinola from operating in our city.”
