Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya has tweeted her thanks to people who have sent her messages of support since she was charged with perverting the course of justice.

The 34-year-old Labour MP, who won her seat at the General Election in 2017, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on July 12 charged with the offence.

Court records show she was charged over allegedly lying about who was behind the wheel of a speeding vehicle.

Ms Onasanya, who had previously kept quiet following the revelation, has now broken her silence on Twitter - writing that she was "most grateful" for the backing she'd received.
