"Following a police investigation, today at Wilmslow police station, a 28-year-old woman has been cautioned by police for possession of a controlled drug," The Sun quoted him as saying.
Sources close to Katona have revealed that she almost broke down in front of cops. A source said: "She was in pieces in the police station. She cried and at times was barely able to answer the detectives' questions."
Katona"s lawyer, Alaric Walmsley, claimed that she was not charged over the incident. He said: "She has not been charged and I believe that will be the end of the matter." A friend says Katona now fears intense quizzing by the social services, and is afraid of losing her children.
The pal said: “She was backed into a corner this time and just simply had to put her hands up and admit to it. She just can't understand how things have come to this, next time she could find herself going to prison and she knows that."
The friend added: "Kerry's always denied she had a drug problem but now she has been forced to admit it and that will have serious implications when it comes to social services and her children's welfare."
