Chris Huhne need not step down, says president Tim Farron

Liberal Democrat Party President Tim Farron does not think Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne would have to stand down from the cabinet if there was a full police investigation into allegations he asked someone else to take his penalty points for a speeding offence.

He told Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics: "Tony Blair remained prime minister while he was investigated, I imagine Chris Huhne can just about cope with being Energy Secretary."
