Luther Barratt, 18, of Smith Avenue, Lynn pleaded guilty to being concerned in making of an offer to supply cannabis and was sentenced to 15 months in a young offenders institution.

Ryan Cook, 20, of Trinity Road, St. Johns Fen End was sentenced to 150 hours supervised work and ordered to pay £240 in fines for possession with intent to supply cannabis.
