Teacher wants to be reunited with children after losing them to drugs

A privately-educated teacher has announced that she wants to be reunited with her children after losing them when crack cocaine and heroin turned her into a county lines drug dealer. 

Angela Davey, 39, made headlines in January when it was revealed she had gone on the run for four months before she could be sentenced for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

She started taking drugs when her marriage began to crumble in 2015. She met a recovery addict on Tinder and the pair started taking cocaine recreationally.

In 2017 her ex-husband moved away with their two children, aged 10 and eight, after he won sole custody  of them.  

She told the Mirror: 'I started ­taking coke daily with the kids gone. I felt isolated.

'One day Joseph and I went to someone's flat and they asked if I'd tried smoking crack. 'I thought it would block ­everything out. I liked it. It was intense.

Ms Davey rapidly lost control and quit work on mental health grounds. In April she turned to heroin. 

She said: 'Dealers told me it would help control cravings for crack.

'I'm an intelligent person but by then I only thought short-term – feeding my cravings. I smoked it at my flat and I instantly forgot everything.'

Heroin dealers moved into her home and she began taking the drug daily.

The gang was part of a county-lines operation that ferried drugs between Norwich and London.

They paid her rent in 'eight-bits' - two £5 shots of heroin and six of crack. Eventually police arrested three of the dealers before detaining Ms Davey in July. 

After her release, she started sleeping on the streets in London with her boyfriend, Joseph, 40.
