Woman jailed

A senior probation officer was jailed for 15 months at Maidstone Crown Court for admitting harbouring an escaped prisoner with whom she was having an affair. Pamela Luck, 54, of Graveney, Kent, whose job was to vet prisoners seeking parole, rented a house for Michael Fenlon, 39, a convicted armed robber who absconded from Swaleside jail, Isle of Sheppey, Kent, last May.
