A woman reverted to committing crime when she missed appointment with the Community Drug Team and her drug-blocking prescription was stopped.

Tammerine Lee, 41, of Boothley Road, North Shore, pleaded guilty to two thefts.

She was sentenced to a four months curfew from 7pm to 7am and ordered to pay £85 costs plus £60 victims’ surcharge by District Judge David Scanlon sitting at Blackpool Magistrates ‘ Court.

Stephen Duffy, defending, said for 20 years Lee had battled a drugs problem and been helped in her fight by The Community Drug Team.

She was now back working with The Community Drug Team and back on a drug blocker.
