Graham was arrested after tips from the public in the seaside town of Withernsea.

She was found in possession of class A drugs including heroin and cocaine and was subsequently accused of having a class A drug with the intention of delivering.
On the Humberside Police Facebook page, users could quickly point out the toll that the abuse had taken.
Christine Storey said: & I am 64, I look young compared to her. Is she perhaps a lesson in what drug abuse can do to your skin? & # 39;
Chloe Smith said: “She may need help, but this is a photo you should show to teenage drug users to try and deter them from drug use, because she looks 80 so let's see what drugs do to you & # 39;
And Pat Beischer said: & # 39; Linley was a sweet girl when she was younger, just show you what drugs can do. & # 39;

Continued drug use can lead to abscesses, tooth decay – or & # 39; meth mouth & # 39; as is generally known – and premature aging of the skin, which often adds someone decades.
Perhaps one of the most worrying and surprising consequences of the consumption of Class A drugs is the skeletal characteristics.
Drugs affect almost every system in the body, and bloodshot eyes, dilated pupils, swollen faces, and discolored skin are all noticeable signs of drug abuse. It can also be a steep and rapid change, with faces and figures being destroyed in a few years in some cases.

Heavy methamphetamine users can develop dull skin and self-injured wounds caused by users plucking their face and body to reduce the feeling of insects crawling under their skin.
The skeletal appearance is often the result of a suppression of the appetite, mainly because meals are not regularly consumed.
Cocaine can lead to chronic skin ulcers, pus-filled skin and the development of Buerger's disease, an inflammation in small and medium blood vessels.
Heroin also has the ability to reduce the moisture content in the epidermis – the outermost layer of the skin – which contributes to dry, aged and itchy skin, often up to decades of a person's appearance.
