Judge overrules millionaire’s will

 

A judge has overturned the will of millionaire Wynford Hodge who had left nothing to his partner of 42 years, Joan Thompson, instead leaving his £1.5m fortune to two tenants living in his caravan park. Mr Hodge was adamant that he did not want Joan or her four children to inherit any of his fortune, a letter attached to his will indicated, believing she was “financially comfortable”. The judge said this was an error and awarded her a cottage on the estate worth £225,000 plus £190,000 in cash.
