Whittaker was searched under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 on Tuesday, March 8 this year, where he was found to have three wraps of cocaine, two mobile phones and over £1,000 in cash in his possession and was arrested.

A subsequent house search at his home address led to a further 50g of cocaine, over £5,000 in cash, around £18,000 worth of designer goods, and an extendable stun device being found.

He was jailed on Wednesday, June 8 at Aylesbury Crown Court for a total of two years and 10 months.
