Three people have been charged by the police with being involved in the supply of heroin in Bridlington following a raid on a home in the town.

Anthony White, 43, Sally Hughes, 33, and Andrew Everest, 40, are charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin following the seizure of £600 worth of the class A drug in a Kinder egg.

It follows a raid on the home of Hughes and White in Bridlington by Humberside Police and a search.

White, 43, formerly of Prickett Road, Bridlington appeared via video link from Hull Prison at Hull Crown Court on Wednesday January 6. Principal crown advocate Phillip Evans said all three were charged with involvement in the supply of class A drugs following the seizure of heroin and their mobile phones.

Sally Hughes, of Marshall Avenue, Bridlington, failed to attend court on time. The judge ordered a warrant should be issued for her arrest with no bail. She surrendered to the court after the hearing had ended having travelled from Bridlington.

Mr Evans set out a detailed timetable for the case. Defence barrister Richard Thompson for White said he had yet to be provided with evidence against him and was not able to advise his client.

Judge Richardson told White and Everest: “If this case is to be a trial a defence statement has to be filed. It is an important document. Any default can have serious consequences.”

Everest was released on bail. The case was adjourned for a plea and directions hearing on March 14 and a schedule trial on April 18.
