Former energy secretary, Chris Huhne was clocked speeding in March 2003 and persuaded his then wife, Vicky Pryce to take his points so he could avoid losing his licence. Huhne and Pryce were both charged last year with perverting the course of justice over the offence and were due to stand trial together. But the former Cabinet minister dramatically changed his plea yesterday, admitting the offence and resigning as an MP. His ex-wife still denies the charge, saying she was coerced into taking the points and is standing trial alone.
