A woman has become the first female in the UK to be sent to prison for posting sexually explicit ‘revenge porn’ photographs of her ex-girlfriend on Facebook.

Samantha Watt, 31, from Enfield, London, was today sentenced to 18 weeks in jail today at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.

The mother-of-four posted intimate images of the 20-year-old female victim – including one of her performing a sex act on Watt – through her Facebook account, without her consent.
