Drug-dealing former Coronation Street actor Christopher Hargreaves has sentence cut to 4 years
A former Coronation Street actor who took a whole new career path when he became a drug dealer had his sentence slashed by senior judges.
Christopher Hargreaves, who played drugs boss and gangster roles in the soap series, was caged for four-and-a-half years in April.
The 48-year-old, of Valley View, Clayton, was convicted of possessing cannabis with intent to supply and having crime-tainted cash.
His former wife - 'pillar of the community' Samantha Hargreaves - was handed an 18-month suspended sentence after being convicted of two charges of possessing dirty money.
