Huhne questioned on speed evasion

CABINET minister Chris Huhne has been interviewed by police over allegations he tried to evade punishment for speeding.

Mr Huhne and another person - thought to be his ex-wife Vicky Pryce - were questioned amid claims he asked her to take penalty points on his behalf in March 2003.

Essex Police said: "Two individuals have been interviewed at police stations in Essex and London in respect of allegations regarding a speeding offence."

The force did not confirm whether either interview was carried out under caution, but said no arrests were made.

A spokeswoman for Mr Huhne said: "Chris Huhne helped the Essex Police with their inquiries today and looks forward to an early resolution of this issue."
