A Co Down chef who admitted baking cannabis brownies for his friends has avoided prison.

Imposing a four month jail sentence on Richard Steenson at Newtownards Magistrates Court but suspending it for three years, District Judge Mark Hamill told him he should be "absolutely aware of the danger of how close you are to going to prison today".

Steenson (34), from Manor Grove, Bangor, earlier admitted five drug offences including having cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply between December 2, 2019 and March 16 last year.
