Detective Constable Andy Macdonald said: “Chambers was looking to cash in by selling drugs at the Secret Garden Party, but his actions have cost him his freedom and potentially a large amount of money.

“We will not tolerate the use and supply of drugs anywhere in Cambridgeshire and will continue to target anyone involved in such criminality. Anyone who is thinking about bringing illegal substances to events being held in the county should be warned they face being caught and put before the courts.”
