A BRIT flight attendant arrested in Dubai after getting caught up in a drugs bust on a first date faces another blood test.

Derrin Crawford, 23, was at her date’s flat when it was raided. Cops found two cannabis joints and arrested the pair.

She was later transferred to Al Barsha jail, even though she gave a negative drugs test.

Radha Stirling, of charity Detained in Dubai, said she hopes the man will confirm the drugs were his and that Derrin knew nothing about them.

She said: “She is being tested again, and when it is once more established that Derrin did not and does not consume any drugs, we are told that the case against her may be dropped.”

But she warned that Derrin, of Liverpool, may have to stay in the UAE indefinitely while investigations continue.

Derrin, who lost her mother aged 11 and was raised by an aunt, moved to Dubai in 2018 after securing a job with the Emirates airline.

She was arrested on June 21 and managed to alert her family on June 25. She is being kept in handcuffs in isolation in the prison.

The Foreign Office is in touch with Derrin’s family.
