Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has stepped down from his position following the confirmation that he would be charged with perverting the course of justice over a 2003 speeding case.

The charge relates to a case where Mr Huhne's ex-wife, Vicky Price, accepted his penalty points.

Mr Huhne, Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh, said he was innocent but would stand down to 'avoid distraction'.
