Former Hollyoaks star Paul Danan has been fined for drug possession and abusing police officers in Hertfordshire.

Danan, 32, admitted at Stevenage Magistrates' Court possessing cannabis and cocaine and a public order offence.

Officers arrested Danan, who lives in the Royston area, on 4 and 5 September.

Danan was fined a total of £350 and referred to a drugs agency for support and admitted "medicating myself" for anxiety and depression.

On 4 September police were called to Kneesworth Street, Royston, and shortly afterwards arrested Danan over cannabis possession and a public order offence when he swore at officers.

The next day officers responded to reports of a disturbance in Stamford Yard, Kneesworth Street, where Danan was arrested again and charged with cocaine possession.

Danan is best known for his role in the Channel 4 show Hollyoaks as Sol Patrick, who he played between 1997 and 2001.

He also appeared on television show Celebrity Love Island in 2006.
