Western pair jailed over sex in Dubai taxi

A British woman and Irish man accused of engaging in sexual activities in a Dubai taxi have been sentenced to three months in prison as well as deportation for breaching the United Arab Emirates' decency laws.

The pair were accused of engaging in sexual activities in a Dubai taxi, but both deny the charges of "breach of honour with consent" and committing "an indecent act in a taxi".

The lawyer for the defence said he would appeal the verdict.
