No Easter Eggs for this lot — just a few doses of prison food.


Faces of 18 killers, thugs, thieves and drug-dealers convicted during March for crimes across in Northamptonshire and now detained at her Majesty's pleasure.


Their crimes ranged from attempted murder, assaulting a pregnant woman and conspiracry to rob a man in his 60s of £38,000 he had just withdrawn from a bank.


In one case, detectives found more than half-a-kilo of cocaine in a Northampton house following what started as a routine stop near the town centre.


Editor’s note: “An earlier version of this article stated that Carl Townsend, aged 39, previously of Northampton, had been jailed for seven years for conspiracy to commit robbery. This was based on information published and supplied by Northamptonshire Police. We have since been informed that Carl Townsend was, in fact, sentenced in 2017. Two co-defendants pleaded guilty last month and are due to be sentenced in May.”
