Jonathan Aitken: 'Prison is tough but not terrible'
Both Chris Huhne and his ex-wife Vicky Pryce are facing jail sentences.

Talking to Today presenter John Humphrys, former cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken - who went to prison himself - described the process of being imprisoned and the issues Vicky Pryce and Chris Huhne will have to face.
"It's all a pretty wild west scene for someone that is used to the relative calm of Westminster," he explained.
"It's disorientating and tough but not terrible - and they'll get through it," he added
