An internet dater who cried rape when a man crept away after sex, because she failed to match her online profile, has been jailed.

Emily Pike, 23, met Tom Mills on the web and the pair arranged to spend the night together at a Premier Inn in Bristol.

But, after deciding she did not meet his expectations, Mr Mills slipped away into the night. He later texted to claim a friend was in trouble.

When Pike awoke to find the 24-year-old gone, she called the police and told them he raped her in the hotel and in his car.

However, CCTV images from their date in 2011 proved she was lying and she was charged with perverting the course of justice.

Pike, of Caerphilly, South Wales, admitted the charge and was jailed for 18 months.

She had a history of telling ‘fantastic lies’, including a previous false rape claim, Bristol Crown Court heard.

However, Detective Constable Richard Worrin said such cases were rare and should not deter genuine victims from coming forward.

‘False allegations of rape undermine the experiences of actual victims and can have a devastating impact on those who are wrongly accused,’ he added.
