A drug addict has been jailed for trying to peddle heroin to a "network" of fellow users in the Carlisle area.
Police found John Andrew Johnston with 20 wraps of heroin, worth hundreds of pounds, when they raided a house on Edward Street in February.

Johnston pleaded guilty to possessing the class A drug with intent to supply and was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court today.

Johnston, of Colville Street North, Carlisle, heard Recorder Potter describe the background of his case as "one of complete tragedy".
