The 27-year-old was jailed for 30 months at Peterborough Crown Court on April 23 after previously pleading guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

PC Luke Upcott from the Impact Team said: “Drugs wreak havoc on people’s lives, trapping them in addiction and causing misery for communities.

“Drug dealing can often be linked to violence, intimidation and other offences as people desperately try to feed their addictions.

“We’re committed to bringing dealers like Madani before the courts.”
