The jury in the trial of former Eastleigh MP Chris Huhne's ex-wife has retired to consider its verdict.

Vicky Pryce is charged with perverting the course of justice by taking her disgraced ex-husband's speeding points in 2003.

Jurors at Southwark Crown Court in London heard the economist denies the charge, claiming she was coerced by Huhne as he tried to avoid losing his licence.

The former energy secretary pleaded guilty to the offence last Monday, resigning as Eastleigh's MP.
