Gary Short, prosecuting, said, 11 days later, Massyn was seen in the car park of the SureStart Centre in Wellingborough in a white Vauxhall.

Police officers detained Massyn and they found two Kinder Surprise eggs wrapped in a sock that contained 50 wraps of heroin and 42 of cocaine, worth a combined £1,840.

Massyn, of Wellingborough, was also found to be in possession of a large hunting knife.

At court on Monday, he pleaded guilty to four charges of possessing class A drugs with intent, possessing a bladed article in public and driving whilst disqualified.

Recorder Patrick Upward QC sentenced Massyn to a total of five years in prison for the drugs charges and one-year, to be served consecutively, for possessing the knife.
