Detectives acted after receiving information that the dad of three was a main player in a small network of dealers who operated in Albert Street and Leith Walk.

Depute procurator fiscal Isobel Clark said Gibbons sold £100 of heroin to the officer on June 14. He then handed over £50 worth of cocaine three days later and a £100 batch of heroin on June 24.

Gibbons pleaded guilty to three charges of being involved in the supply of illegal narcotics.
