Chris Huhne and Vicky Price

Former cabinet minister Chris Huhne and his former wife Vicky Pryce have both been jailed for eight months for perverting the course of justice.

The pair, sentenced at Southwark Crown Court, were convicted after she took driving licence points for him after he was caught speeding in 2003.

Huhne resigned as the Liberal Democrat MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire after admitting the charge.

Pryce had claimed the defence of marital coercion.
