The 72-year-old, who used to store cannabis in an egg box making his usual rounds, gathered 17 customers by "word of mouth".

The milkman's police statement said the cannabis "was for elderly people who had aches and pains".

"You must understand these are serious offences and in my judgment the likely outcome is an immediate custodial sentence," the Sun quoted Judge Beverley Lunt as warning.

Holding was released on bail, and is due to be sentenced on February 6.
