A man who helped drag an unconscious drug user into the street has been jailed for 15 months.

Sean Thompson, 37, was found dying in Curwen Street, Workington, Cumbria in November 2011.

Anthony Douglas, 20, of Whitehaven, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, at an earlier hearing at Carlisle Crown Court.

In July, his mother Lisa Noble, and her friend Douglas Foster, were jailed after admitting the same offence.

The court was told that Mr Thompson was taking heroin with Douglas's mother, Lisa Noble, and her friend Douglas Foster, when he became ill.

Instead of calling an ambulance Noble and Foster dumped him in the street; Douglas, who was not in the same room at the time, helped.

Foster, 55, of Fisher Street, Workington, was jailed for five years, and Noble, 39, also of Fisher Street, for 32 months.
