A 30-year-old Colyton woman has been given a 12-month conditional discharge after admitting carrying drugs.

Sophie Elaine Webber, of Cowhayne Lane, was ordered to pay £85 court costs by Exeter magistrates, and was told the drugs would be destroyed.

Webber pleaded guilty to possessing 0.07 grams of class A drug diamorphine - with a street value of £3 to £5.

She also pleaded guilty to carrying one tablet of class C drug Subutex - a heroin substitute used to treat addicts.

Magistrates slapped Webber with a 12-month conditional discharge for possessing the class A drug.

The bench said there would be no separate penalty for being found with the class-C drug.
