Help

Christine Hemming, wife of Yardley MP John Hemming, was filmed by CCTV cameras stealing a kitten from the Birmingham home of her husband's mistress Emily Cox.

Hemming denied burglary and said she was dropping off post and did not know there was a cat there.

She said she tried to return the kitten when she realised she had it.

The 53-year-old, from Moseley, Birmingham, was convicted at the city's crown court.
