Cumbrian heroin dealer David Dean jailed

A 41-year-old Cumbrian man has been jailed for four years and eight months for being involved in the supply of more than £25,000 worth of heroin.

David Dean, from Flimby, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court on Thursday.

He pleaded guilty to both charges of supplying heroin and to possessing it with intent to supply it.

Det Insp Amanda Spedding said he had played "a pivotal part" in an organised gang which had been supplying drugs in Cumbria and Scotland.

Mr Dean was spotted passing £12,000-worth of it to a man on Flimby station, then a few days later caught with another £5,688-worth at his home in Mason Terrace, Flimby, near Maryport.

Police also found another £8,580-worth hidden in a wood behind his home.
