A FESTIVALGOER pulled two Kinder eggs stuffed full of drugs from within her body after being caught entering Creamfields.

Charlotte Williams ignored prominent warning signs about taking drugs into the Daresbury music festival on August 25, 2022.

The pub chef was quizzed by security staff when she arrived at the festival entrance with a four-day pass, admitted that she had drugs hidden inside her and pulled out a Kinder Egg from her genital area.

The 20-year-old denied she had anything else, but when told she would be strip searched, she produced another Kinder egg from the same location.

Liverpool Crown Court heard today, Friday, that she asked if she would be in trouble, and when told it would depend if it was for personal use, she said it was not.

“She was asked how much and said there was a fair bit, and that it was not for her but brought in for someone else,” said Gerald Baxter.

The prosecutor told the court that the eggs were found to contain 19 small snap bags and two large snap bags which contained 25 grams of ketamine and three and a half grams of cocaine.

The ketamine was worth £1,500, while the high purity cocaine had a street value of £300.

When interviewed by police, she said: “I do not accept I would supply any of the drugs to anyone else. I would not have sold or even shared them. They were for my own personal use.”

But Mr Baxter said she had pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply on the basis she should have shared it.

She admitted possessing the ketamine with intent to supply on the basis that just under half was ‘retail quantity’, and the rest was to share with her friend.

In an impact statement, festival organisers detailed a fatality at the event in 2022, while £89,000 worth of drugs had been seized from dealers, with almost £179,000 worth voluntarily deposited by festivalgoers in surrender bins.

The court heard that Williams, of Narrow Lane in Gresford, near Wrexham, has no previous convictions.

Simon Parry, defending, said that she is a highly valued member of staff at the Pant-yr-Ochain public house in Gresford.

She started work there as a teenager and ‘found it busy and stressful, which led her to taking drugs’.

August 2022 had been a difficult time for her, the court was told, and she decided to take drugs to the festival ‘without very much thought for the consequences’.

He said that Williams had not re-offended and is now ‘doing well’ as a full time worker at the pub.

Mr Parry added that she is ‘deeply ashamed’ of her offending behaviour and described the effects on her family, who ‘do not view it as acceptable’.

Judge David Potter described Creamfields as a ‘massive festival which attracts hundreds of thousands of people and which has a drug problem’.

“Deaths have occurred at Creamfields as a result of those taking controlled drugs,” he said.

He commented that there were many drugs warning signs on the way into the ‘zero-tolerance event’.

“You chose to ignore all those warnings and attempted to enter the site. Secreted on your body were two Kinder eggs – one ketamine, the other cocaine,” he added.

He said that she intended to sell ketamine which commands a premium price because of the risks of taking it in, and that she had taken significant steps to avoid detection.

However, he sentenced her to 12 months in detention suspended for 18 months, as well as 120 hours of unpaid work and 30 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

In addition, the court imposed a curfew between 11pm and 8am for the next three months.
