John Terry's father done for drugs

12:01 pm on 14 May 2010

The father of the England and Chelsea footballer John Terry has pleaded guilty to a charge of supplying cocaine.

The East London court was told 56-year-old Edward Terry had supplied the drug to an undercover News of the World reporter in a bar last November, and had been paid $300.

Terry's lawyer said his client had been targeted by journalists because of his son, and was embarrassed about the upset it had caused.
