Moray Peacock-Howie, 21, of Victoria Street and Jake White, 18, of Cradley Walk, both pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine in a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Wednesday July, 7.

Returning to the same court for sentencing on Tuesday, July 20, Peacock-Howie was jailed for three years and four months, whilst White was sentenced to two years and six months’ in a youth offenders’ institution.
