A 33-year-old pregnant woman who concealed £8,590 worth of heroin internally has been jailed for four years and six months.

Louise Ann Creer, of Edremony, Port Erin, was arrested at the Sea Terminal on February 10 after arriving from Heysham.

She told police she had not known she was pregnant.

Creer said she had received a letter threatening her and her family if she did not go to McDonald’s in Liverpool and collect the drugs.

Police retrieved three packages weighing 19.84 grams, 32.71 grams and 33.35 grams, totalling 85.9 grams.
