A fourth member of a group of men accused of dealing hard drugs across town has admitted his role in the enterprise.

Diwa Limbu had initially denied conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine and was due to stand trial.

But the 25-year-old’s case was brought back before Swindon Crown Court and, through a Nepalese interpreter, he changed his pleas to guilty. Now a judge has told him to expect a jail term when he is sentenced following the trial of other men in the summer.

Limbu, of Netherton Close, Park South, admitted his part in the conspiracy between the start of December 2015 and the end of June 2016. Recorder Ed Burgess QC adjourned the case so a presentence can be prepared on him saying “You have pleaded guilty today to two serious offences.

“Judge Pawson, who normally sits in this court, will be the judge who sentences you and at the moment three of your co-defendants are due to go to trial. The judge can’t sentence you, or anyone else, until that trial has been completed.

“It seems to me overwhelmingly likely that you will get a prison sentence for these two serious offences but the final decision about that and how long it will be is not mine to make.”

He released Limbu on unconditional bail to a date to be fixed following the trial of the other men.

At earlier hearings three other men also admitted taking part in the trade in heroin and crack cocaine during the seven month period.

Daniel Conway, 24, of Gresham Close, Walcot; Omarhi Henry-Peddie,21, and Solomon Johnson, 19, both of Hackney, north London, all admitted the two counts.
