Comfort Yinusa: Clubber 'cried rape in fit of anger after man took too long to find his car'

A woman cried rape because she was angry that her lift home was taking too long to find his car, a court has heard.
Comfort Yinusa admitted perverting the course of justice after wasting more than 100 hours of police time when she claimed a Nigerian man raped her.

The man Yinusa accused - who cannot be named - spent 14 hours in a police cell while his friend, who was accused of groping Yinusa, spent 18 hours in custody.
Both were then on police bail for six weeks.
The victim had left Tube worker Yinusa, from Tilbury, in a McDonalds near Liverpool Street Station for 45 minutes as he tried to find his lost parked car in the early hours of October 2013.
The victim told police that he remained in contact with Yinusa by phone as he tried to find the car but she was getting angrier and angrier.
When he arrived to pick her up she stormed off and called her boyfriend to pick her up instead.
As they drove home she told him she had been raped by the accountant and sexually assaulted by his friend.
Unemployed Yinusa, who was 22 at the time, was a daily cocaine user and twice over the drink drive limit and reacted with anger.
She claimed she had met the accused man at the Dollhouse nightclub near Liverpool Street that night.
Officers identified where the rape was said to have happened in Old Broad Street and placed a cordon around it for several hours.
But four hours after making the rape claim, she refused to have a medical examination and then repeatedly refused to attend police interviews.
During the investigation detectives seized CCTV from 16 venues and pieced together that her attacker had been looking for his car and cameras covering the place where she claimed she was raped recorded no such thing.
Detectives found she had swapped numbers with her alleged attacker, but when presented with CCTV and phone evidence she made no comment.
It was only as her trial was to begin that Yinusa, 24, admitted perverting the course of justice.
