A Haverfordwest man said to be a "reformed character" appeared at Swansea crown court today (Friday) to admit dealing in drugs.

Ross Nelmes, aged 21, of Hill Street, appeared before Judge Geraint Walters for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

Nelmes admitted offering to supply meow meow and cannabis, the actual supply of both drugs on different occasions, and the simple possession of quantities of the drugs on another date.

James Hartson, Nelmes barrister, said he had been arrested for the offences in August, 2016, when he had been a drug addict and had shared his drugs with friends.

But he had since "turned his life around" and no longer took drugs.

Nelmes had also found a job as a catering assistant at Withybush Hospital.

Mr Hartson said he appreciated that dealing in a Class A drug such as meow meow usually ended in an immediate prison sentence, but Nelmes, he added, was a reformed character.

Judge Walters said he was prepared to consider an alternative to prison and ordered a probation officer to prepare a report into Nelmes' background.

Nelmes will be sentenced on September 29 and was granted bail meanwhile.
