The 40-year-old embraced a prisoner during the visit and began kissing them. They put their hands down each other’s trousers before they were stopped by guards.
Burgess, of Holloway in London, was taken to Thorpe Wood Police Station, where officers discovered she was wearing two bras and two pairs of pants.
They also discovered the package containing thousands of pounds worth of drugs including cannabis and Spice.
