A Crown Prosecutor has been found guilty by an Old Bailey jury of attempting to pervert the course of public justice after she lied to soften the blow of a drink drive charge against her police detective boyfriend. Penelope Schofield, 35, told police that Detective Constable Nigel Phillips only took the wheel of his car while drunk after she hit a kerb.

Schofield was released on bail until 5 December for sentencing and faces the possibility of being struck off the Solicitors' Roll by the Law Society.
