Court hears Vicky Pryce-Chris Huhne phone call


The trial of Chris Huhne's former wife Vicky Pryce has heard a recording of a conversation between the couple.

Ms Pryce is charged with perverting the course of justice. She denies the alleged offence, which relates to claims she took speeding points for her then husband.

The former Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary has resigned as an MP after admitting a similar charge.

The jury heard evidence from the Sunday Times political editor, Isabel Oakeshott, who said she had been told by Ms Pryce that Huhne had pressurised her into taking speeding points when he had been driving.

On Tuesday the court was played this recording of a conversation between Ms Pryce and Mr Huhne. After the end of the call Ms Pryce and Ms Oakeshott can be heard discussing it.
