Chris Huhne: CPS statement from Keir Starmer

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne will face charges over allegations that he asked his former wife to accept penalty points on her driving licence for a speeding offence he committed.

Mr Huhne, who denies any wrongdoing, will appear in court with Ms Pryce in 16 February.

Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer said the CPS concluded "there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Mr Huhne and Ms Pryce for perverting the course of justice."
