– Lydia Huhne
There has been so much publicity around my family and it's been negative, so I wanted to use this horrible experience to raise awareness and turn it into something positive.
That's the first time I had ever used a non-licensed cab. However close you are to home, however safe you feel, you must never get in those cars. They are just touters.
I feel quite lucky that nothing really serious happened, I'm pretty shaken up by the whole event.
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."
Former Cabinet minister Chris Huhne has pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to perverting the course of justice over claims his ex-wife Vicky Pryce took speeding points for him a decade ago. It was after his car was caught speeding on the M11 in Essex.
