Copper supplies drugs to schoolgirl, 10

Accidentally, but still...

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A Lincolnshire mum has been left "annoyed" and "gobsmacked" after her 10-year-old daughter returned from school with a bag of amphetamines - courtesy of the local Old Bill.

Now, we can think of several sink estates where parents would be delighted if their kids came home with speed in their satchels, but Amanda Butterfield mercifully does not live in one of them.

The outrage resulted from a bit of a mix-up during an anti-drugs day organised by Kia Butterfield's school, held at a Butlins near Skegness, the BBC reports. Cops hid two bags of whizz to demonstrate their sniffer dog's prowess, but only one was retrieved.

Lincolnshire police spokesman Chief Superintendent Dave Wheeler explained: "When the packages were being hidden two packages were inadvertently placed in the girl's bag and when the dog found the drugs only one package was retrieved. It was a training exercise for the dog and education for the children but what happened shouldn't have happened."

Wheeler promised that steps were being taken to ensure that never again would Lincolnshire constabulary supply class-Bs to minors. The police collected the drugs from Butterfield's home and apologised to the family.

Kia's mum concluded: "I am pleased Kia is sensible and did the right thing by handing the drugs over to her father - and the police did the job to get the message across. But I am very annoyed it did happen." ®
