A woman who claimed a taxi driver sexually assaulted her at knifepoint in his cab has been jailed after he used a recording application on his smartphone to expose her lies.Hurrah, yes? Well, no. And here's why:
He was stripped and spent a day in a cell until officers eventually listened to the recording and discovered Berwick was lying.
He said: ‘They took everything from me, including my clothes, and I was crying in the cell. I told them there was a recording on my phone – I was saying “please check it”.’
‘My son is 14 and my daughter is eight. They were crying when I came back and were asking why I had been arrested.
‘The police raided my house and searched my taxi looking for the knife which she says I used to cut her with.
‘She really has turned my life upside down.’This is unacceptable. The police have GOT to stop arresting and processing as a matter of course.
