Pryce: 'I discussed points swapping with the Cables'

The jury in the retrial of Vicky Pryce was shown emails between Pryce and Sunday Times political editor Isabel Oakeshott in which Pryce writes she had discussed points swapping with Vince Cable and his wife.

In an email to Isabel Oakeshott on April 9, Vicky Pryce wrote:

"Actually I had told Vince and Rachel about points before when the three of us were having supper about a month ago - they were horrified at the time but VC has probably forgotten it by now. He was v tired that night."

Vince Cable and his wife Rachel have issued a joint statement saying they have "no recollection" of discussing speeding points with Pryce.
