The daughter of former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne has decribed how she fought off a cab driver who tried to sexually assault her. 24-year-old Lydia Huhne headbutted the driver after he locked the doors of the car, climbed into the back and touched her face and breast.
Today Lydia Huhne, who co-runs a theatre company, called for all children to be taught self-defence.
She said: "I really do think it's important that self-defence is taught in schools. If it wasn't for me having done fight scenes in plays I wouldn't have ever thought about headbutting.
"Luckily nothing really happened because I reacted fast. If another person had got in the car and hadn't had training it could have resulted in something much more dire."
