A WOMAN has been jailed for 18 months after she was caught smuggling drugs into a local prison.

Lauren Carson, 24, was caught in possession of heroin during a routine check when she attended Addiewell Prison, West Lothian, in February.

She appeared for sentence at Livingston Sheriff Court yesterday after earlier pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of the class A drug.

Carson, of Springburn, Glasgow, was on bail from Lanark Sheriff Court when she committed the offence.
