A grandad who was sentenced for being concerned in the supply of amphetamine to an undercover police officer has been back in court.

Kenneth Navin, 58, was originally sentenced in June last year as part of Operation Irondale, but a judge heard yesterday that he was now unfit to do the unpaid work which he had been ordered to carry out as part of his sentence.

The grandfather, who lives at The Shay Guest House, Halifax, had his previous order revoked by Judge Colin Burn and had it was replaced with a four-month prison term, suspended for a year.

The judge, sitting at Bradford Crown Court, said Navin would also be subject to a five-month electronically-monitored home curfew between 9pm and 7am.

The judge warned Navin that if he breached the suspended sentence order there was no doubt it would be activated.
