It is alleged that on January 4 this year, the 20-year-old was caught in Long Ground, Oxford, with a quantity of crack cocaine, heroin and  £80 in cash.

Francis was due to be sentenced but it was delayed as a pre-sentence report had not been prepared as well as other legal matters.

His case has now been adjourned to be heard at the same court at a later date.
