He was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on April 9.

PC McGill, who was investigating the case said: ‘A search of the address Mark was staying at revealed a large amount of boric acid, a cutting agent which is used by dealers to cut drugs and can have serious health implications for users themselves.

‘Officers also found a large cleaver readily accessible by his bed.

‘Thanks to the work of our proactive drugs teams, we have taken yet another dealer off our streets and prevented Mark from causing further harm to the victims of his crimes.’
