Vicky Pryce retrial hears judge investigated over Huhne story 'lie'

Police are investigating a barrister and part-time judge for allegedly lying about helping to leak the Chris Huhne speeding points story, a trial has heard.

Constance Briscoe, a friend of Huhne's ex-wife Vicky Pryce, was arrested after telling police she had not been in contact with the media about the story.

Ms Pryce is accused of taking speeding points for Huhne in 2003 but denies perverting the course of justice.
