Two people have been charged with using a drone to send phones and cannabis into a Kent prison.

Ingrid Edwards, 25, from Charlton, and Daniel Lee Kelly, 37, from Grove Park, south London, are both accused of two counts of sending prohibited items into HMP Swaleside in Eastchurch.

It is alleged the items were sent into the jail between 16 March and 25 April.

Ms Edwards, of Wolfe Crescent, and Mr Kelly, of Amblecote Meadows, appeared before Medway magistrates on Tuesday.

They are due to appear before Maidstone Crown Court on 24 May.
