A motorist has been jailed for drink-driving and possessing cocaine with the intent to supply.

Matthew Smith was given three years for the drug offence and three months, to be served concurrently, for driving while over the legal alcohol limit.

He was also disqualified from driving for a year.

Police were called to Moorfield Avenue, Bolsover, on May 9 last year after the Ford Fiesta Smith was driving hit a parked car.

They arrested Smith and found him in possession of drugs wraps.

The 22-year-old, of Cornwall Drive, Brimington, was sentenced at Derby Crown Court on Thursday after pleading guilty.
