Prison teacher who had sex with inmate serving life for murdering two girls jailed for two years

A prison teacher who had sex with an inmate serving life for murdering two teenage girls with a machine gun has been jailed for two years.

Samantha Drinkwater, 49, was caught on camera committing “a number of sexual acts” with Michael Gregory, 35.

She also smuggled cannabis and porn to him in HMP Whitemoor, a category A prison in Cambridgeshire.

Drinkwater was employed by People Plus, an employment support and training services firm, at the time of their affair between 2015 and 2017.

She had given prison bosses assurances that she would try to avoid contact with Gregory after concerns about their relationship were raised.

But when covert surveillance cameras were put in her office last year the couple were filmed performing sexual acts.

She was also seen smuggling several small packages containing pornography on SD cards and cannabis to Gregory.
