This is a picture of the Gainsborough mother-of-three who has been jailed after she being caught on the street with heroin and crack-cocaine valued at more than £1,200.

Lincoln Crown Court heard how Claire Embling, 30, was stopped in the town by police officers who suspected she may be dealing drugs.

Mark Achurch, prosecuting, said when it became clear that Embling was going to be searched she handed over a large lump of crack-cocaine which weighed 11.59 grams.

The quantity of crack-cocaine could be divided into 57 different £20 deals with a street value of around £1,140.

Passing sentence, Judge John John Pini QC told Embling: “You knew you had these children who were your responsibility when you committed these offences.

“I’m quite satisfied you were involved in peddling these drugs on the streets because you were on benefits and needed extra money.

“The tragedy of this is your three children, and it is a tragedy.”

Embling was jailed for two and a half years. The judge also made an order confiscating the £355 in cash to be seized from her.
