A drug dealer has been jailed for nine years and eight months after police seized more than £200,000 of cocaine and cannabis.

Anthony Shrimpton, 39, was caught following a police operation in Aberdeen and Tarland in 2016 and 2017.

Shrimpton - who was part of a drugs gang - was found guilty following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

It was his third serious drugs conviction. He had been freed from a previous sentence in October 2015.
