His home on Hall Grove, Hyde Park, was searched and over £1,000 worth of heroin and crack cocaine were found in a toiletry bag in his bedroom.

Smaller quantities of spice and tablets of a class C drug were also found along with cash and digital scales.

Ismail, now of Savile Place, Chapeltown, pleaded guilty to four counts of possession of a class A drug with intent to supply, possession of a class B drug and two counts of possession of a class C drug.

He has two previous convictions for drug dealing.

Sentencing, Judge Geoffrey Marson QC said: "It doesn't need me to tell you that your situation is very significantly aggravated by the fact that you have two previous convictions relating to the supply of class A drugs.

"As you would have been told on previous occasions, it is a vile trade that brings misery and sometimes death to those addicted to class A drugs.

"They have to burgle, rob and steal to fund their habits."
