Woman accused of attempting to give legal highs to Cumbria inmates due in court today

A WOMAN who allegedly tried to give legal highs and mobile phone sim cards to prisoners in Cumbria’s only jail is due to appear in court in Barrow today.

Kelly Anne Gilfoyle, of Birkenhead, will appear in Furness Magistrates’ Court charged with two counts of attempting to get prohibited articles into prison.

It’s alleged the 31-year-old attempted to get five mobile phone sim cards and 50 34g sachets of synthetic cannabis into HMP Haverigg on December 23.

Gilfoyle has yet to enter the plea to either charge.

Have your say

Isn't it about time the prison was pensioned off and shut down.
It must be a nightmare to try to totally secure the perimeter fence, the location being so remote.
Lets move the prisoners closer to the cities where most of them come from, re-assign the staff to other prisons , take down those dilapidated buildings and return the site to nature.
