The wife of a Birmingham Liberal Democrat MP is due to go on trial accused of burgling the home of her husband's lover and stealing a kitten.
 
Christine Hemming, the spouse of Birmingham Yardley MP John Hemming, denies burgling the home of Emily Cox contrary to the 1968 Theft Act.
 
The 53-year-old defendant, who is facing trial by jury at Birmingham Crown Court, is alleged to have committed the offence on September 29 last year.
 
Mrs Hemming, of Moseley, Birmingham, entered a not guilty plea in February.
