Lincoln drug dealer jailed for six years

A Lincoln drug dealer who played a "significant role" in the distribution of class A drugs in the city has been jailed for six years.

Norman Foreshaw, 34, of Church Lane, was caught after police stopped a taxi he was travelling in.

Lincoln Crown Court heard he dropped nine packages containing heroin and crack cocaine while trying to escape.

The 34-year-old later admitted possessing heroin with a street value of £800 and £150 worth of cocaine.

A second man, James Matthew Hopkins, 38, also of Church Lane, was sentenced to three years for possessing more than 80 wraps of heroin and cocaine.
