Chris Huhne's ex-wife Vicky Pryce has said she "resisted" taking his penalty points for speeding in 2003 because her then-husband "very often ignored speed limits" and had "brought it on himself".
Appearing at Southwark Crown Court, Pryce said Huhne asked her to take the points because he feared losing his licence would affect his burgeoning political career.
"I knew, of course, immediately that I had not driven the car and, of course, had not incurred the penalty," she said.
She said they argued for "a number of days" about the issue, but then it "went quiet".
