A 49-year-old woman from Royston has been found guilty of drug offences.

She was ordered to pay £500 in costs and has to complete 120 hours of community service.
Following investigations by North Herts Operation Scorpion team, Paton was arrested on August 1, 2013, after she was found to have amphetamine, drugs paraphernalia and deal bags in her possession.
