Craig's crack caution

Dwarf star admits habit

Craig Charles has escaped a court hearing for crack-cocaine possession after admitting he used the drug.

The Red Dwarf star was instead given a police caution after he agreed to go into rehab to help kick his habit.

In June, the Daily Mirror exposed the 42-year-old’s £600-a-day habit with secret film of him taking more than 60 hits on a journey from London to Manchester, where he was filming Coronation Street.

Soap bosses suspended him following the story.
