Isabel Oakeshott, the political editor of The Sunday Times who worked with Vicky Pryce to expose her taking of Chris Huhne’s speeding points, has said she “really doesn't feel responsible for what has happened to her”.
Oakeshott told Daybreak: “I really don’t feel responsible for what has happened to her.
"Remember where this story started - it started with Chris Huhne walking out on his family after 26 years of marriage.”
She added: “For me it was, at the beginning, a political story – that’s why I was pursuing it.
"It was about a cabinet minister who had apparently committed a criminal offence.”
