A senior Leicestershire Police officer and his wife have appeared in court charged with perverting the course of justice over a speeding incident.

Assistant Chief Constable Gordon Fraser, 48, and his wife Teresa, 42, also a serving officer, appeared at St Albans Magistrates' Court.

They are accused of falsely claiming she was the driver of a speeding car in September last year when it is alleged her husband was at the wheel.

Both were bailed until 22 October.

The speeding is alleged to have happened in Strathclyde, Scotland, but the couple live in Ansley in Warwickshire.

Mrs Fraser is employed by West Midlands Police.

Mr Fraser worked for West Midlands Police for 22 years before moving to Leicestershire in 2010.

The couple were asked to stand outside the dock at the court as the charge was read out.

Neither of them spoke during the hearing.

The next hearing will be at St Albans Crown Court.
