Celebs in tabloid drug videos 'should be prosecuted'

The video evidence at the centre of tabloid splashes including the Daily Mirror’s “Cocaine Kate” and The Sun’s “Amy Winehouse on Crack” should be enough to secure a prosecution, the Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Ian Blair has said.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, followed up everywhere today, Blair said jurors should be able to decide whether illegal substances have been taken based on the videos leaked to the tabloids.

He said the law states that someone must be in possession of a Class A or Class B drug to be prosecuted.
