Sandhurst pharmacy worker sold Army stories to The Sun
Friday 30 August 2013
A pharmacy assistant working at the Sandhurst military academy, where British Army officers are trained, sold a series of stories to The Sun newspaper, the Old Bailey has been told.
Tracy Bell, 35, from Goldthorpe in South Yorkshire, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office, having received about £1,250 for five articles published in the tabloid newspaper between 17 October 2005 and 7 July 2006. At the time, she was employed by the Ministry of Defence as a pharmacy assistant at the Sandhurst Medical Centre.
The Royal Military Academy, near Sandhurst in Berkshire, is where officers receive their initial training.
The court was told that Bell, who was allowed to sit at the back of the packed courtroom outside the dock as she entered her plea, will be sentenced on a date yet to be arranged in October. She was released on bail.
