Chris Huhne political career praised by Chris Davies MEP

A Lib Dem MEP who worked alongside Chris Huhne in the European Parliament said the former energy and climate change secretary could "rub people up the wrong way", as he was "ambitious and self-confident and pushy"

Chris Davies said it was a disappointment to lose a minister who was "prepared to blow his top and let off a jet steam" towards their Conservative coalition colleagues.

Mr Davies praised the work of Mr Huhne in Europe and said he would be sorely missed for his work on climate change, as he stood down from the cabinet.
