A JUDGE told a dishonest mother-of-three she would have to do some work for the first time in her life to avoid going to prison for dealing in £630 worth of heroin.

Judge Michael Mettyear told jobless Donna Brooks, 34, he had no doubt she would find work hard because she had never done any before and suspected she was far more involved in drugs than she admitted.

Brooks of Prickett Road, Bridlington, appeared for sentence at Hull Crown Court yesterday, Thursday April 11 after admitting possession of two bags of heroin on the basis it was for her and her boyfriend Jonathan Lane, 38.

Lane, of Prickett Road, Bridlington, also appeared alongside Brooks to be sentenced for possession of six grams of heroin in 11 raps.

Judge Mettyear ordered Lane should be given 100-hours of unpaid work and Brooks should be given a 12-month suspended prison sentence and 180-hours of unpaid work.
