Two drug dealers who were last month acquitted of murdering Darren Broadbent are to face no further police action.

It was revealed in court on Monday that the pair - Jaiden Browne-Evans, 18, and a 15-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons - were using a Grangewood flat as a base from which to deal drugs.
