The husband of Nigella Lawson - art collector Charles Saatchi - has spoken about why he took a police caution for assaulting her.
He told the London Evening Standard: "Although Nigella made no complaint I volunteered to go to Charing Cross station and take a police caution after a discussion with my lawyer because I thought it was better than the alternative of this hanging over all of us for months."
Mr Saatchi accepted the caution after photographs emerged appearing to show him grabbing his wife's throat.
Art collector Charles Saatchi has announced he is divorcing Nigella Lawson, weeks after he was pictured with his hand over her throat.
Charles Saatchi dismissed pictures showing him with his hand around his wife Nigella Lawson's neck as part of a "playful tiff."
