A TEENAGE boy caught trying to sell cannabis at last year's Bestival has appeared before the courts.

The 17-year-old, who lives in Esher, Surrey, and cannot be named, was found with eight grams of the class B drug at Lulworth on August 5 last year.

Once at the police station in Wimborne Road, Poole, officers also discovered he had 1.63 grams of ketamine, 1.54g of cocaine and 0.56g of ecstasy, or MDMA.

On September 3, he appeared at the Dorset Youth Court to admit two counts of possessing a class B drug with intent to supply it and two of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply it.

He was referred to a youth offender panel in Surrey for a contract having effect for 12 months.

He was also ordered to pay a £20 surcharge and £85 costs and his drugs were forfeited and destroyed.
