Statement regarding Laura Plummer

10 Jan 2018

Detective Chief Superintendent Judi Heaton, Head of Crime, said: 

“We would like to clarify that although we are reviewing the circumstances surrounding how Laura Plummer came to have the Tramadol, we are not carrying out a criminal investigation into any named suspect on the basis of the information we currently have.

“The reason for this is that if someone passes on a prescribed drug, it is not necessarily a criminal act but it is a civil offence under the Medicines Act.”
