Wiltshire, of Blaines Court, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine and possession of criminal property.

The trio were handed their sentences at Peterborough Crown Court.
PC Amadae Dowd from the Southern Impact Team said: “Hunt and Wiltshire took advantage of James’ vulnerability as a drug user so they could take over his flat to deal class A and B drugs.
“These sentences are a reflection of how seriously the police and the courts take drug dealing in Cambridgeshire.”
