Undercover journalist Mazher Mahmood, known as the Fake Sheikh, has been found guilty of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

Mahmood, 53, was found to have tampered with evidence in the collapsed drugs trial of singer Tulisa Contostavlos.

His driver and co-defendant, Alan Smith, 67, was also found guilty of the same charge following a trial at the Old Bailey.

Prosecutors said Mahmood had had a “vested interest” in her prosecution.

Both men will be sentenced on 21 October.(FromBBc)
