A MUM who was caught smug­gling drugs into prison when her in­mate son slipped his hand up to her bra has been jailed.

A prison of­fi­cer at HMP Wy­mott in Ley­land, Lancs, spot­ted the in­ap­pro­pri­ate em­brace be­tween Winifred Sweeney, 42, and her son, who then tucked some­thing into his waist­band.

Sweeney, of Ain­tree, Liver­pool, who had no pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions, got six months in prison.

Pre­ston Ses­sions House Court heard she had been “placed un­der pres­sure” to take the goods to her son.
