A man found with over £1,000 of drugs at a Huntingdonshire festival has been handed a suspended sentence.
Michael Purdy, 26, was stopped by security staff at last year’s Secret Garden Party in Abbots Ripton because he was acting suspiciously.
They searched his bag and found MDMA, ketamine and cannabis to the value of £350.
Police searched his tent and found a further £810 worth of MDMA, ketamine, cannabis and cocaine, empty bags and scales.
Purdy, of Woodrow Avenue, Hayes, was charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine, MDMA, ketamine and cannabis but later pleaded guilty to possession of class A and class B drugs and the supply charge was dropped.
