Pryce trial hears Chris Huhne phone calls

Southwark Crown Court has been hearing audio of phone calls between Chris Huhne's and his ex-wife Vicky Pryce, who is on trial accused of perverting the course of justice.

Former Liberal Democrat cabinet minister Huhne admitted the same charge on Monday and has resigned as an MP.

Huhne and Ms Pryce, an economist, were charged over an incident in March 2003 when his car was caught by a speed camera on the motorway between Stansted Airport in Essex and London.

It is alleged that between 12 March and 21 May 2003, Ms Pryce falsely informed police that she was the driver of the car so Huhne could avoid prosecution.

Tom Symonds reports.
