Huhne police fail to find CCTV evidence
CHRIS HUHNE, the Energy Secretary, is unlikely to face charges over claims that he asked his former wife to take speeding points on his behalf, after detectives were unable to find CCTV evidence in the case.
Essex Police have spent four weeks investigating, but have found nothing to prove the allegations against the Liberal Democrat politician.
It was claimed Mr Huhne asked his then wife, Vicky Pryce, to take his points after he was clocked speeding on the M11 motorway on the way back from Stansted Airport in 2003.
Searches of both police records and information held by the airport’s authorities has failed to unearth any evidence or CCTV footage that shows he was there at the time of the alleged offence.
Det Supt Tim Wills from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said detectives were continuing work to establish if any offence had been committed.
