TWO men face jail after being caught with £250,000 of heroin in a McDonald’s car park in London’s East End.

Police kept watch on an Audi in the car-park of the takeaway by the A11 Bow Bridge Flyover last Friday evening and caught the two handling the drugs, then moved in and arrested them.

Syed Hussain, 26, and Muhit Rahman, 22, appeared at Thames Magistrates’ court yesterday (Monday) where they admitted charges of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply. About £45,000 in cash was also seized by detectives.

Hussain, from Luton, Beds, and Rahman, of no fixed address, were committed to Snaresbrook Crown court for sentencing on March 2.
