Drug dealers sold heroin and amphetamines outside an Essex primary school, it has been revealed.

The dealer was charged with supplying the class A narcotic in 2013, according to figures released by Essex Police as part of a  Freedom of Information request.

The figures come just weeks after it was revealed in parliament that one primary school age pupil is suspended every week for being drunk or high on drugs.
