[A] MAN and woman have admitted intending to pervert the course of justice following a road crash in West Cumbria.
Gemma Armfield, 31, and Lyndon Mawson, 34, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today (THURS).
They each admitted a charge of tending or intending to pervert the course of justice between 10th March and 1st June this year.
The offence was said to have been committed as police and an insurer were informed that Mawson was the driver of a vehicle involved in a collision. In fact, Armfield was behind the wheel.
Armfield pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Denton Park, Gosforth, on 11th March, and using a vehicle without third party insurance.
In addition, Mawson admitted making a false representation to insurer Tesco, between 10th and 13th March, and that he permitted the use of a Peugeot vehicle without insurance.
The case was adjourned, and Armfield and Mawson, both of Mill Hill, Cleator Moor, are due to be sentenced at the crown court on 2nd November.
In the meantime the pair were remanded on bail.
