A further search at Canterbury Police Station revealed Dunn had also been concealing a package on his person containing 22 small cellophane drugs wraps, half of which contained heroin and the other half cocaine.

He pleaded guilty to possessing the class A drugs with intent to supply and possessing cannabis at Canterbury Crown Court on Monday, January 14 and was sentenced to three years in prison by Judge Simon James.

Inspector Lee Thompson of the Canterbury Community Safety Unit said: "Dunn was seen dealing heroin and cocaine in plain sight in a children's play area in the middle of the day.

"Kent Police takes the supply of illegal drugs in our communities seriously and will continue to take proactive action to disrupt people who are involved in the supply of illegal drugs in the county.

"I hope this three-year sentence will serve as a reminder that the courts take drug dealing just as seriously as we do."

Anyone with concerns about illegal drug supply is urged to contact police on 101, Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or to speak to their local Police Community Support Officer.
