A woman who claimed that a Primark security guard removed her baby as she was breastfeeding in a store in Leicester has appeared in court.

Caroline Starmer, 28, claimed on Facebook that the guard took nine-month-old daughter Paige from her on July 13.

The story was then widely reported in the media and she claimed a male security guard grabbed the child from her breast at the Humberstone Gate store.

She was charged with intent to pervert the course of justice by Leicestershire Police on July 28.

Appearing at Leicester Magistrates' Court, she was told her case will be sent to Leicester Crown Court on September 22.
