Minister Chris Huhne in new probe over speeding claims
Prosecutors have asked police to make further inquiries into claims Cabinet minister Chris Huhne tried to dodge a speeding penalty in 2003.
Essex Police delivered an evidence file last month after claims that Mr Huhne asked ex-wife Vicky Pryce to accept penalty points on his behalf.
Yesterday a Crown Prosecution Service spokesman said: "We have asked Essex Police to carry out further inquiries. Our review will continue when those inquiries have been completed."
Ms Pryce claimed in a newspaper interview in May the Energy Secretary had tried to pass on his points to her to avoid losing his driving licence.
