A BARNSLEY pharmacy assistant who worked at a military training centre has admitted misconduct in a public office for selling stories to a newspaper.

Tracy Bell, 35, from Goldthorpe, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to one count of the offence between October 17, 2005 and July 7, 2006, during which time she received about £1,250 for five articles published in The Sun newspaper.

At the time she was a Ministry of Defence employee working as a pharmacy assistant at Sandhurst Medical Centre.

Bell was bailed until her sentencing in October.
