Drugs supplier Harry Lamont jailed over death of women

A man has been jailed for three years for supplying drugs to two women who later died after taking the substances.

Harry Lamont, 46, supplied methadone to Natalie Fry in a flat in Scotstoun, Glasgow, in March 2012.

He later injected Sharon Gibb with heroin at the same flat in April 2012.

Lamont was originally charged with culpable homicide over both deaths but was later convicted on two charges of reckless conduct following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

'Little remorse'

Judge Lord Carloway had deferred sentence after the trial for background reports.

Sentencing Lamont at the High Court in Edinburgh, the judge referred to a report that had been written by a social worker.

The report's author said Lamont did not appear to be sorry for his crimes.

The judge added: "The social inquiry report shows that you have little remorse for the deaths of these girls."
