  • A YOUNG entrepreneur, who won the backing of Virgin founder Richard Branson, has been jailed for dealing drugs at a music festival.

    Jacob Hill, founder of The Lazy Camper, was jailed for 28 months for selling cannabis and MDMA at Leeds Festival, on August 23.

    Hill, of Anvil Street, Brighouse, admitted possession with intent to supply drugs worth £1,751.

    Leeds Crown Court heard Hill, a former Yorkshire Ambassador for Virgin Media Pioneers, had fallen into £17,000 of debt at the time of the offence.

    Hill was invited to chat with Prince Andrew about ways to encourage other young people to get involved in business after becoming one of the winners of the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Awards in 2013.

    We'll have more on this soon.
