A BARROW man has been given a curfew after pleading guilty to possession of four illegal drugs.

Bryan Terry Hackett, of Parade Street, appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old, who was represented in court by duty solicitor Mike Graham, admitted being caught with illicit substances in Barrow on November 23.

The court heard Hackett was found in possession of Class A drugs MDMA, cocaine and heroin. He was also found with diazepam, a Class C controlled drug.

Magistrates said the offences were so serious they warranted a community order.

Hackett was given a five-week curfew requiring him to remain indoors between the hours of 8pm and 6am.

He was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and an £85 surcharge used to fund victim services. The £170 total must be paid at a rate of £20 per month.

Magistrates also ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the drugs.
