A Blackpool high school labourer was found with two types of drugs when searched by police.

Alexander Saxon, 23, of Walmsley Close, Thornton, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine and cannabis.

He was fined £360 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £36 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates who ordered the destruction of the drugs.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said police found the drugs on Saxon after he was arrested on February 21.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said Saxon only had a small amount of drugs.
