David Cameron: Huhne made 'the right decision'

Prime Minister David Cameron has said Chris Huhne made "the right decision" in resigning as energy secretary after being charged with perverting the course of justice over a speeding case in 2003.

His ex-wife Vicky Pryce will face the same charge in relation to claims she accepted his penalty points.

Mr Huhne, the Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh, said he was innocent, but would stand down to "avoid distraction".
