Nick Clegg: Chris Huhne has done an outstanding job

Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has announced Ed Davey as the new Energy Secretary, following Chris Huhne's resignation.

Mr Clegg said he had "made it clear" to Mr Huhne that "if he clears his name as he wishes to... I would like to see him back in government in a key position."

Mr Clegg said he believed Ed Davey to be "the right man for the job, to take up from where Chris has left off."
