Husband sues ex-wife after discovering children were not his

It has been reported in the Daily Telegraph that Richard Rodwell, a 46-year-old factory manager from Peterborough, has been awarded damages of £25,000 against his ex-wife, Helen, who had convinced him that he was the father of her two children.

Mr Rodwell, who had raised the children as his own, successfully sued his ex-wife for deceit when, following the breakdown of the marriage, he discovered that the children were not his and in fact had two different fathers. Mr Rodwell’s solicitor told the newspaper that the Court had likened the situation to bereavement and had awarded a similar sum to what would be received if your child died in an accident.
