Disgraced former Co-op boss Paul Flowers pleads guilty to drugs possession

Former Co-operative Bank boss Paul Flowers has pleaded guilty at Leeds Magistrates’ Court to charges of possessing cocaine, methyl amphetamine and ketamine.

He has been fined £400 and ordered to pay £125 in costs after pleading guilty to drug possession.

The 63-year-old Methodist minister was charged with two counts of possession of Class A drugs cocaine and methamphetamine and one count of possession of the Class C drug ketamine.

He resigned as the Co-op bank’s chairman in June last year after claims of inappropriate expenses payments.

He was later suspended by the Methodist church and the Labour party.
