A woman who was found with a large amount of heroin concealed inside her body has been jailed for more than two years.

Karen Tuck was given 28 months after she pleaded guilty to possessing heroin with the intent to supply.

Police officers stopped Tuck in Cavell Drive, Danesmoor, last April 17 as they suspected her to be in possession of drugs.

The 32-year-old, of Cavell Drive, was searched in custody and the heroin was discovered.

She was sentenced at Derby Crown Court earlier this month.

• Anyone with information about drugs should call police on 101.
