Chris Huhne's political career ends after guilty plea

The political career of Chris Huhne came to a crashing end today, as the former cabinet minister admitted lying over allegations that his wife had taken speeding points on his behalf ten years ago.

It was only after the break-up of Huhne's marriage with Vicky Pryce that the speeding ticket claims emerged and text messages from his son, read out in court today, revealed the impact it has had on his family.
