Lesbian on ceremony bigamy charge
A woman has appeared in court accused of going through a civil partnership ceremony with her lesbian partner while still being married to a man.

Suzanne Mitchell, 29, of Wingfield Gardens, Shrewsbury, appeared before the town's magistrates on Thursday.

The mother-of-three denied making a false statement to a registrar when she married Caroline Beddowes in a civil partnership ceremony last February.

The case was referred to the crown court and Mrs Mitchell was given bail.
