BBC News - Huhne suggests defeat over AV referendum campaign

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne suggests the Yes to alternative vote campaign has lost, just hours before the referendum result is due in.

Mr Huhne - one the most vocal Yes campaigners - told the BBC that "if the boxes are anything like what I've seen it doesn't look good for the Yes cause".

Polls suggest voters will reject a switch from first-past-the-post, to AV where candidates are ranked in order of preference.

The result is expected around 2000 BST.
