A 20-year-old man has admitted being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine on the streets of Great Yarmouth.

Dawn Mudekunye had been due to stand trial at Norwich Crown Court, but before it got underway and a jury sworn in, his barrister Sharmila Salvi asked for the charges to be put again and Mudekunye changed his plea to guilty on the two drugs charges he faced.

Mudekunye, from Chatham, Kent, admitted being concerned in the supply of the Class A drugs, on March 6, this year.
