A BEAUTY queen told police she’d been robbed because she was scared to go home and tell her mum she’d lost her new phone.

Alicia Akinlami – who was crowned Miss West Lothian in December – made up the story after losing her £500 mobile on a night out with her boyfriend.

She went to Livingston Police Station and reported that she’d been assaulted and robbed of her jacket, the phone and a bag.

But after police viewed CCTV footage and quizzed the taxi driver who’d driven her home they found that she’d lied.

The 18-year-old pleaded guilty at Livingston Sheriff Court today to wasting police time on November 9 last year.

She had sentence deferred for a social work background report.
