Aberdeen cocaine courier Choudry Ghafoor jailed for five years

A repeat offender caught acting as a "delivery boy" for a batch of cocaine in Aberdeen has been jailed for five years.

Police had spotted Choudry Ghafoor, 31, driving on Westburn Road and followed him into the city's Arnage Crescent.

When an officer approached, he ran off, but was caught, and cocaine worth up to £2,000 was found.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, Judge Lady Scott said she had to take his previous drug convictions into account.
