Mervyn Westfield, the former Essex cricketer, has spoken publicly for the first time about his part in a spot-fixing scandal which led to him being jailed.

Westfield was given a four month prison sentence in 2012 after he admitted taking £6,000 for making sure he gave away a certain number of runs when he bowled against Durham in 2009.

He was investigated as part of an anti-corruption campaign headed by the Professional Cricketers' Association.
