A MAN caught in possession of cannabis and cocaine has been told to do unpaid work.

Mark Steel pleaded guilty to two charges of having class B cannabis and class A cocaine on him at a property in Carless Close, Gosport.

The 27-year-old, of St James Road, Bridgemary, Gosport, was given a community order stating that he must do 60 hours of unpaid work in the next year by Fareham magistrates.

An order was made for the cannabis to be forfeited and destroyed under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

Magistrates decided to make no order for costs.
