A 39-year-old woman has been criticised after posting photos that make it look like she's getting on it in a hospital ward.

The pictures include one image of a woman exhaling what looks like smoke, and another of two lines of white powder racked up on a table, next to a rolled-up receipt. Rebecca Barns-Gambrell, from Plymouth, says the photos were taken as a joke because she has "become tired of seeing images of drug abuse shared online", reports the Metro.

Fair enough. But also: bit weird, if you're fed up of drug photos being posted online, to then post drug photos online?

Anyway, there's more:

"The white powder didn't belong to me or my friend – it belonged to somebody that was staying with myself at home," said Barns-Gambrell. "I'd found it on the Friday and I had it on me [when I got to hospital]. I'll tell you now that that product wasn't taken. That product was handed into the staff at the hospital; it wasn't used. I didn't want it in my house and my lodger is gone now."

Okay!

As for the "smoking" picture, she explained: "The smoke was just messing around – it was a [vape]. My friend and I were mocking it up as a joke when I was in hospital."

A spokesperson for Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust commented: "The social media post has been brought to our attention and we are investigating."
