Oliver was also ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and given a six month curfew order.

Cole, 22, and Chung, 34, had already pleaded guilty to the offences, while Oliver was found guilty after a trial.

The case against the group began on August 14, 2012, when police raided a house in Oak Avenue.

Drugs officers, acting on a tip off, found the drugs and arrested the three defendants inside.

Cole, of Olton Avenue, Beeston, Chung, of Oak Avenue and Oliver, of Bilborough Road, Bilborough, were all sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday, November 8.
