I thought there was a presumption of innocence.

This morning's news is full of the Football association removing John Terry as captain of the England football team, and speculation that Chris Huhne will be removed from the cabinet if the DPP says that Huhne will be charged (last night the news was saying that the Prime Minister and the Deputy PM had decided he couldn't stay if he was charged).

Both Terry and Huhne deny the charges.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presumption_of_innocence#The_presumption_of_innocence_in_modern_practice describes some cases where UK law removes the presumption of innocence, but neither charge appears to come under those exceptions.
