A man has admitted plotting to supply heroin to a grandmother who hid drugs in a bag beside her Cornish pasties.

Teresa Wood, from Bodmin, her husband, two sons, grandson and 11 others were jailed in April for their part in a £1m plan to bring heroin from Liverpool to Devon and Cornwall.

Simon Kinney, 49, of no fixed address, admitted conspiracy to supply class A drugs at Exeter Crown Court.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on 6 December.

Judge Francis Gilbert warned Kinney to expect a custodial sentence.

Kinney and the drugs gang were arrested and charged following a two-year surveillance operation by Devon and Cornwall Police codenamed Raby.

The supply chain started in Liverpool and then passed through Torbay before the drugs were distributed over a wide area which included Tiverton, east Devon and Cornwall.
