The girlfriend of Otis Ferry, son of the pop singer Bryan Ferry, has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

Francesca Nimmo, 22, was arrested by Gloucestershire police at 7am on Friday at her home in Lower Bodlington, Northamptonshire.

Arrested at the same time as Ms Nimmo, a student at the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester, was Adrian Simpson, 53, a Countryside Alliance official, at his home in Haverfordwest, Wales.

Ferry is in Gloucester Prison awaiting trial for perverting the course of justice. Crown prosecutors suspect he tried to influence a witness in an earlier case against him of assault and robbery. He appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court in May.

Ms Nimmo and Mr Simpson have both been granted bail until January 28.
