A 38-year-old woman has been jailed for perverting the course of justice and possessing a firearm without a license in Aylesbury.

Amanda Hounslow, 38, of Ayrshire Close, was sentenced to one year and eight months in prison on Friday, December 10.

The sentencing is in connection with a shooting that took place within the town three years ago [December 2018].

It was later revealed that Hounslow accepted the firearm, a sawn-off shotgun, from Madden who was a family friend and hid it in a friend’s garage.

This prolonged the original police investigation, as the firearm wasn't found until April 2019.
