Huhne ex-wife sought revenge

Vicky Pryce, the ex-wife of former energy secretary Chris Huhne, attempted to destroy his career in revenge for ending their marriage, a court heard yesterday. Pryce has pleaded not guilty to perverting the course of justice regarding allegations she took speeding points on her driving licence instead of Huhne.

Having previously professed his innocence, Huhne pleaded guilty to perverting justice on Monday.
