Former MP Chris Huhne, who was jailed for lying about a driving offence, has claimed the newspaper investigation that led to his downfall was "payback" for his stance towards Rupert Murdoch.

He told BBC Newsnight: "Grooming is not an unfair word... the email exchanges and voice mail exchanges between the journalist involved and my ex-wife were made public in the trial. I think it's a fair adjective."
