Chris Huhne arriving at court for sentencing

Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne has been sentenced this afternoon at Southwark Crown Court for perverting the course of justice for lying about who was driving his car when he was clocked doing 69 mph in a 50 mph zone on the M11 in 2003.

Huhne’s former wife, Vicky Pryce, who took the speeding points on his behalf was also jailed today for 8 months.

Chris Huhne is likely to be taken to Wandsworth prison whilst Pryce will spend tonight at Holloway women’s prison.
