A teenager from King's Lynn who admitted dealing cannabis has been warned he could face jail.

Jonathon Short appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Monday, where he admitted supplying a controlled drug of Class B, and possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class B.

The court heard the 19-year-old has no previous convictions, and a pre-sentence report was ordered.

Judge Andrew Shaw released Short on bail, telling him: "The fact I am ordering a report and releasing you on bail does not rule out custody."

Short, of Hospital Walk, King's Lynn will be sentenced on November 26.
