Former Co-op Bank chairman Paul Flowers has pleaded guilty to drug possession, at Leeds Magistrates' Court.

Mr Flowers, 63, was arrested last November after newspaper allegations he had been involved in a drug deal.

He was fined £400 and ordered to pay £125 in costs after pleading guilty to charges of possessing cocaine, methamphetamine and ketamine.

Mr Flowers emerged from the court building to scenes of chaos.
