Three women have appeared in court charged with drug dealing offences in a north Suffolk town.

Amy Bowen, Nicky Masterson and Vivienne Masterson appeared at Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Friday morning.

All three women are charged with being concerned in the supply of cannabis in Bungay on or before August 13 last year.

Bowen, of Hardley Street, in Loddon, Norfolk, is also charged with being concerned in the supply of cocaine and being concerned in the supply of ketamine.

The 23-year-old entered no plea to all charges.

Nicky Masterson, 23, of Cucumber Lane, Beccles, and Vivienne Masterson, 61, of Kingsway, Earsham, also entered no plea to the single charge they both face.

Magistrates said the more serious allegation faced by Bowen, for being concerned in the supply of cocaine, could only be dealt with before a judge in a higher court.
