Tetra Pak heir Rausing avoids jail over wife's death

One of Britain's richest men, Hans Rausing, has been given a ten-month suspended sentence for failing to give his wife a proper burial.

Eva Rausing's body was discovered hidden under a pile of clothing and bin bags at the couple's house in London, two months after her death.

The judge said Rausing's behaviour showed "the utterly destructive effects of drug misuse".

Ben Ando reports from Isleworth Crown Court in West London.
