Chris Huhne pleads guilty to perverting the course of justice

Former cabinet minister Chris Huhne has pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice over claims his ex-wife Vicky Pryce took speeding points for him a decade ago.

The Lib Dem MP, 58, had originally pleaded not guilty to the charge at Southwark Crown Court.

His former wife, Vicky Pryce, has previously pleaded not guilty to the same offence.

They were charged last year in relation to the alleged offence in 2003.
