A BARNSLEY woman who pocketed around £1,000 in exchange for information about Prince William and Prince Harry has been spared jail.

Tracey Bell, a pharmacist's assistant who worked at Sandhurst military college, received the money after leaking details to a tabloid newspaper.

Military bosses suspected the 35-year-old of the leaks after stories based on classified information appeared in the press.

Bell, from Goldthorpe, pleaded guilty to one charge of committing misconduct in a public office.

Sentencing Bell to a nine-month jail term, suspended for two years, Mr Justice Saunders said: "Not only was selling the information a breach of her duty as a public official, but also a breach as a medical professional."

Defending Bell, Japinder Singh said his client ‘showed remorse’ and had got her life back on track.

He added: "This whole experience has had a significant effect on her. There are no indications of her committing further offences."
