A protective father lied to the police about who was behind the wheel when his pregnant daughter reversed a van into a parked car and then drove off.

Keith Nelson, 51, of Fareham Avenue, Rugby, was jailed for four months after he pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to perverting the course of justice.

Prosecutor Mark Phillips said that in June last year there was a minor accident after a van was reversed off the drive of a house in Banbury Road, Rugby, into a car parked partly on the grass verge opposite.
