As Worrall went into a nearby pub for a drink, the detective suspected a drug deal had taken place and called in his colleagues to make further enquiries.

Worrall, who's 22 and from Percy Green Place in Huntingdon, was arrested at the scene and the van was searched.

Officers found cocaine and cannabis with a street value of more than £200,000 inside.

Worrall has been sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court to three years and four months in prison. He admitted possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis and possession of criminal property.
