Barrister Constance Briscoe has been found guilty of lying to police probing former cabinet minister Chris Huhne's speeding points case.

Lawyer and part-time judge Briscoe, 56, was accused of lying in the inquiry into Huhne, who got his wife to take speeding points for him.

Speaking after the verdict, DCI John McDermott said: "This verdict today shows that no-one is above the law and clearly perverting the course of public justice is a serious offence."
