Max Reeves, defending, said Gambanga claimed the weapon had been given to him by someone 'further up the chain of command' and he had never inspected or fired it.

Jailing Gambanga for five years on the weapon charges and another three years for the drugs offence, Judge Stephen Thomas told him: "You were heavily involved in the marketing of class A drugs."

He said: "Gambanga has demonstrated he is an individual who presents a clear threat to public safety.

"Not only does he see people suffering from drug abuse as a means to make money, his willingness to possess a loaded gun demonstrates he was willing to commit acts of serious violence.

"Despite being based outside of Kent, he was not able to escape capture after our enquiries revealed he had been actively involved in coordinating the supply of drugs to Gravesend.

"Each day we are gathering new information on the supply of class A drugs in our town and, as this case shows, we will not hesitate to come after drug dealers at their own homes to ensure they are brought to justice."
