Convicted drug dealer Curtis Warren has agreed that court restrictions should be placed on him on release from jail.

The 49-year-old from Liverpool, who is thought to have a £300m fortune from drug smuggling, had been due to fight a serious crime prevention order.

However, Warren accepted the order following talks between his legal team and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The parties will now discuss a list of restrictions Warren will be subject to on release.

Warren, who was jailed for 13 years in 2009 for plotting to smuggle cannabis with a street value of £1m into Jersey, is expected to be released in two years' time.

Lord Carlile QC, for HMRC, said that as a result of "some very recent communications, we have been able to come to terms on which [Warren] submits to summary judgment".
