On Thursday (April 6) at Cambridge Crown Court Nazir pleaded guilty to both offences. He was sentenced to three years in prison for each charge to run concurrently.

PC Rob Giffen said: “Drug dealing will not be tolerated in Peterborough and I hope this sentence sends a strong message to those who feel this kind of behaviour is acceptable.”
