And he admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine, a class A drug, in the same period.

Barnard, of Gladys Avenue, North End, also admitted possession of criminal property - £524.

His co-defendant Huskinson, of Nash Close, Waterlooville, admitted being concerned in the supply of ketamine.

Both will be sentenced on January 25.

Barnard is due to enter a basis of plea explaining he admits being concerned in the supply of cocaine, limited to what was found in a car.

Communications uncovered from his phone are linked only to the supply of ketamine, Barnard's lawyer told the court.

Adjourning the case for sentencing to January 25, judge David Melville QC ordered probation should complete a pre-sentencing report on both teenagers.

Addressing the pair he said: 'You'll remain on bail on unconditional terms but you must be here on January 25.'
