HEROIN addict Darren Thurling had his curfew order extended by three days after admitting he missed a couple of appointments with the probation service.

Thurling, who was given a drug rehabilitation order last month, had no funds to pay for transport on July 26.

Four days later he was running late for an appointment and then got arrested.

At an earlier hearing, 32-year-old Thurling, of The Causeway, Soham, admitted failing to pay for more than £150 worth of fuel that was poured into barrels on the back seat of a Ford Sierra.
