Herbie Hide admits cocaine charge related to Sun story

Former world champion boxer Herbie Hide has admitted a drugs charge at the start of his trial at Norwich Crown Court.

The case related to a story by The Sun newspaper, which secretly filmed the 42-year-old at a Norwich hotel apparently arranging a drug deal earlier this year.

Hide was due to go on trial for conspiracy to supply cocaine and changed his plea after the jury had been sworn in.

Simon Newton reports.
