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, changed his plea on the first day of his trial at Southwark Crown Court.

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

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

Huhne, from Eastleigh, Hampshire, resigned as energy and climate change secretary after he was charged. He remains as Liberal Democrat MP for Eastleigh.
