A 37-YEAR-OLD Nelson man is facing jail after admitting possessing heroin with intent to supply at Burnley Crown Court.

Rashid Javed, of Rutland Street, a drug user who has served time for supply in 2002, was remanded in custody until April 28th for a pre-sentence report.

Judge Jonathan Gibson told him: “What you have done plainly justifies an immediate custodial sentence.”
