A Skipton man has been handed a two-year suspended prison sentence for possessing cocaine with intent to supply.

Daniel Stephen Blagden, 22, of Burnside Avenue, first appeared at Skipton Magistrates Court in May last year charged with possession with intent to supply 23.74g of the class A drug at his home on August 3, 2012.

Blagden was sentenced at the crown court earlier this month.

In addition to the prison sentence, which was suspended for two years, he will have to be supervised for two years and will have to carry out 200 hours unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay costs of £340.
