A man who was caught with class A drugs stashed inside a Kinder Egg has been jailed.

Craig Stark, 35, was spotted engaging in a drug deal by officers on patrol in Huntingdon on August 3, last year.

As they approached, Stark and two other men fled but they managed to detain Stark after a struggle.

They found cocaine and heroin hidden in a Kinder Egg in his possession, and more drugs in his room at a B&B hostel, worth more than £600 altogether.

He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was jailed for 26 months at Peterborough Crown Court on Monday.
