Tonight we lead on Chris Huhne's decision to resign as energy secretary after learning he was to be charged with perverting the course of justice over a 2003 speeding case.
Mr Huhne said he was innocent of the charge, but would stand down to "avoid distraction".
Tonight we examine where the decision to quit leaves Mr Huhne, how damaging it is for the Liberal Democrats to have a second member forced out of the cabinet, and the impact on the coalition.
Also, bankers have been in the political crosshairs this week with RBS boss Stephen Hester waiving a £963,000 share-only bonus following widespread anger over the award, and his predecessor, Fred Goodwin, being stripped of his knighthood.
Today Labour leader Ed Miliband called for an overhaul of banking culture, saying that the sector was at a "crossroads" and adding that Labour will press for a vote on bonuses in Parliament next week.
Tonight our Economics editor Paul Mason reports on whether this is just a case of politicians taking aim at an easy quarry with little prospect of long term change, or whether reforming capitalism will be the lasting legacy of the economic crisis.
