Craig Murray

The drugs runner has been given three months to stay on the straight and narrow.

Craig Murray was one dozens of dealers and runners caught in an undercover police operation that saw officers pose as drug addicts establish the scale of drug gangs’ dealing in Swindon.

Judge Peter Crabtree deferred sentence for three months, ordering the man work with Turning Point, be assessed for a drug rehabilitation order, live and sleep at his sister’s home, keep in touch with the probation service and commit no more offences.

Daisy Lovatt

The 32-year-old was drunk when she verbally abused people walking past her canal boat near Bradford-on-Avon, crashed her vessel then bit a police officer and laughed "by the way I've got coronavirus".

She was jailed for five months by Judge Jason Taylor QC, who accused her of weaponising coronavirus. You can read the full story here.

Tyler Vernon

Vernon brandished a Taser in a brawl outside Sports Direct last January.

He admitted the crime earlier this year, but then went on the run for several months.

He was jailed for three years and two months. Judge Taylor said: "This was public disorder in full public view, which would have caused considerable unease and alarm."

Claire Browner

Last year, Claire Browner was spared jail after admitting attacking a former partner with a broom handle.

She was back before the court over allegations she had breached her order by failing to keep in touch with probation. But Judge Taylor allowed the order to continue, saying she was "turning things around".
