Labour MP Fiona Onasanya, 35, has been accused of lying to get out of paying a speeding fine

But at the time, on July 24 last year, he was at his parents’ home 1,800 miles away. Onasanya allegedly got the idea from her brother Festus who provided fake details to avoid speeding raps three times last year.

Prosecutor David Jeremy QC told the Old Bailey: “The two of them were acting jointly in telling lies in order to prevent the ­prosecution of the true driver.”

Former solicitor Onasanya, of Peterborough, Cambs, denies ­perverting justice over the offence at Thorney, Cambs.

Delivery driver Festus, 33, admits three counts and will be sentenced after his sister’s trial, which continues.
