Dramatic news from the BBC:
Former cabinet minister Chris Huhne has pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice over claims his ex-wife Vicky Pryce took speeding points for him a decade ago.
The Lib Dem MP, 58, had originally pleaded not guilty to the charge at Southwark Crown Court.
BBC chief political correspondent Norman Smith said:
We can safely say that his political career is over.
As legal proceedings are currently taking place, personal comments about either Vicky or Chris won’t be published at least until the trial has concluded and then only if they’re in accordance with our published comments policy.
