The court heard how Eyre was arrested in High Wycombe on August 25, and during a search officers found he had around 100 wraps of heroin and cocaine.

Investigating officer, PC Hannah Ransome, of the Stronghold team, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “I am pleased that the court have passed an appropriate sentence to Eyre. He was found dealing drugs in broad daylight in the afternoon next to a park where numerous families were visiting the fayre.

“Through our Stronghold Campaign, we will remain committed to working to pursue, disrupt and dismantle individuals and groups involved in drugs supply making the Thames Valley a hostile place for drug dealers.

“Dealers often target the most vulnerable in our communities, and the fact that Eyre will now serve a lengthy prison sentence, should send a stern message to others seeking to profit from such activities that we will catch you and put you before the courts.

“If you have any information relating to drug dealing in your area, you can report this to Thames Valley Police either online or by calling 101. You can also report 100% anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
