Cocaine worth between £180 and £280 and 66 and a half ecstasy tablets worth more than £350 were found in a plastic container in a cupboard under the kitchen sink, Ipswich Crown Court was told.

The cocaine was split into five small plastic bags and a large quantity of the small plastic bags were found in an airing cupboard, said Hugh Vass, prosecuting.

"The prosecution say they are the sort of bags used to retail drugs," said Mr Vass.

Mr Vass said that Cockburn had initially denied having anything to do with the drugs found in his flat.

However, he admitted possessing the drugs after his fingerprints were found on two plastic bags in the plastic container holding the drugs.

He told police that he had recently been divorced from his wife and kept cash in his flat rather than in the bank because the Child Support Agency was after him.

The trial continues.
