A WOMAN accused of making a false rape claim has appeared in court.

Nicola Osborne, of Winchester Road, Buckland, is accused of perverting the court of justice. The 31-year-old is alleged to have falsely claimed she was raped after being forced into a car in Fratton Road, Fratton, in the early hours of July 5.

A 26-year-old man arrested in connection with the allegation was later released without charge. Osborne was released on bail by Portsmouth magistrates to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court in December.
