A motorist who became intimate in his car with his "horny" girlfriend moments before he crashed faces jail today after being found guilty of causing her death by dangerous driving.

Prosecutors said Minesh Parbat, 36, dropped his trousers and underpants at the wheel of his BMW Z3 to take part in a sex act with Lisa Watling.

Ms Watling, 28, was found wearing only a T-shirt and bra after Parbat crashed on the A2011 in Crawley, West Sussex, on March 9 last year while the rest of her clothes were found in the car's footwell.

Members of the public discovered Parbat with his trousers and underwear around his ankles and his buttocks and penis exposed in the aftermath of the collision.

At Lewes Crown Court, Parbat told jurors that mother of two Ms Watling, a hair salon worker, had described feeling "horny" to him and invited him to pull down his trousers as he drove along.

Parbat, who lives in Gregory Close, Maidenbower, Crawley, West Sussex, was last month found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

Adjourning sentencing for reports, Recorder Peter Griffiths QC told him that it is "inevitable that you will lose your liberty".

He added: "To prison you will be going. The question is what length."
