POLICE have charged a 42-year-old man with conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.

Paul Fehily, whose last known address was in Birkenhead, was arrested earlier this week and charged with conspiracy to supply controlled drugs such as cocaine and amphetamine.

Merseyside Police had issued a wanted appeal in a bid to trace Fehily last year as part of a North West Regional Organised Crime Unit investigation.

He has been remanded into custody and will next appear at Liverpool Crown Court on Thursday, October 11.
