A DRUG dealer arrested near the Bromsgrove section of the M5 has been jailed for nine months at Worcester Crown Court.

Judge Christopher said he did not accept Christopher Zangina's "concocted account" that he was merely a courier.

From text messages produced at his trial, he concluded that Zangina was a middle man between users and dealers.

Zangina, 24, of Station Road, Langley, Slough, was found with 676 grammes of cannabis worth £3,000, but with a street value of more than £7,000.

Alexandra Scott, for Zangina, said he had been trouble-free since his last conviction for a drug offence four years ago.
