Labour MP Fiona Onasanya has been found guilty of perverting the course of justice in an attempt to avoid a speeding charge.

The 35-year-old solicitor was accused of colluding with her brother Festus after her car was clocked going 41mph in a 30mph zone in the village of Thorney, near Peterborough.

She was elected to the House of Commons in June 2017 with a majority of 600 votes and promoted to a whip – but stood down from the role last month.

Onasanya will be sentenced alongside her brother on a date yet to be determined.

Festus, 34, from Cambridge, admitted perverting the course of justice three times to avoid speeding points.
