Former Labour Whip Fiona Onasanya found guilty of perverting the course of justice; David Jeremy QC prosecutes

Fiona Onasanya, MP for Peterborough, has been found guilty of perverting the course of justice.

She lied to police after she was caught speeding on camera last year and claimed that someone else had been driving the vehicle.

Ms Onasanya had been jointly charged with her brother, Festus Onasanya, who had previously pleaded guilty to three counts of perverting the course of justice to avoid speeding points.
