Drugs trial set to begin

THE trial of two men charged in connection with Suffolk’s biggest ever cocaine seizure is due to start on Monday.

Terrance Smith, a company director of Ethelreda Drive, Brandon, and Frederick Colverson, of Glasworthy Avenue, London, both 56, will appear at Ipswich Crown Court.

Both men are charged with conspiracy to supply a Class A drug.

They were arrested on November 1 last year after police found cocaine valued at £34 million in Highbury Road, Brandon.

The trial is expected to take three weeks to complete.
