Businesswoman Rebecca Barns-Gambrell, 39, posted the shocking images from hospital
A mother-of-one who was admitted to hospital shared photographs of she and friend smoking next to lines of white powder while they had a “party behind the curtain’.
Businesswoman and ex-council worker Rebecca Barns-Gambrell, 39, posted the shocking images in a group dedicated to partying and 'the sesh' on Saturday night after two days in hospital.
Behind them, medical apparatus can be seen, including leads and plug sockets, as the duo antics are hidden by the hospital's screens.
However, the 'specialist' headhunter has since denied that she actually took any drugs, and claimed it was a joke.
Her post in 'Sesh Club', which has 71,000 members, reads: 'When your mate visits you in hospital and you got your stash in your bag naturally and it's party behind the curtains !!.. Saturday night stops for no man.. or woman.'
Images show Ms Barns-Gambrell appearing to exhale a plume of smoke while her friend leans over in one image and then tilts her head back in another, next to the lines of white powder from her 'stash' on the hospital table with a rolled up piece of paper.
However the recruitment company owner from Plymouth, Devon, claims the images were taken as a joke after she had become tired of seeing images of drug abuse shared online.

When quizzed on why she had the substance in the hospital on Saturday evening, Ms Barns-Gambrell claimed her lodger left the white powder at her home, but said they no longer stay with her.
She insisted that 'the product wasn't taken or used' and was instead handed in to hospital staff as she feared they were drugs.
Ms Barns-Gambrell, who previously worked at Plymouth City Council as a business and administration support officer in the parking unit, said: 'If you want the full background, it's not going to be what you think it is.

'The white powder didn't belong to me or my friend - it belonged to somebody that was staying with myself at home.
'I'd found it on the Friday and I had it on me [when I got to hospital].
