A MAN has admitted taking a car from behind a police cordon during an investigation into the murder of a Russian in Highgate.
Timur Gusev, 26, died after he was stabbed in Shepherds Hill on May 1 this year.
Two Chechen men - Mubarak Suleymanov, 29, and Adam Terlo, 32 - deny murder and are due to be tried in January.
But on Thursday British citizen Asad Mansoor, 22 from Leicester, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice. The Old Bailey heard at some point between May 1 and May 5 he went behind a police cordon and took a car that had been impounded by officers as part of the investigation. He also admits removing the number plate form the vehicle.
