A MAN has been jailed for dealing cocaine and ecstasy at Creamfields.

Samuel Haworth, of Rishton, Lancashire, was found in possession of around £700 of drugs at the dance music festival in Darresbury in August last year.

On Friday, March 2, his honour judge Simon Berkson jailed the 24-year-old for 18 months at Chester Crown Court.

Haworth had earlier admitted possession of cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis with intent to supply.

He becomes the 16th person to be jailed for drug dealing offences at last year’s festival – with sentences handed down totalling 40 years behind bars.
