Eastleigh’s Lib Dem MP Chris Huhne is to stand trial next Monday at Southwark Crown Court on charges of perverting the course of justice alongside his former wife Vicky Pryce.

Mr Huhne – who has always maintained his innocence –  pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charge that he persuaded his ex-wife to take his penalty points for a 2003 speeding offence.

Ms Pryce appearing under her birth name of name of Vasiliki also pleaded not guilty.

The former Secretary for Energy and Climate Change resigned his Cabinet seat 11 months ago in order to defend himself against the charges.
