Conned husband wins damages over wife's IVF deceit

A woman who conned her former husband into believing he was the father of her IVF baby has been ordered to pay £39,000 in damages at the High Court.

The London businesswoman carried out "six years of deception" on her ex-partner, a judge was told. Neither can be identified for legal reasons.

The man said the boy, now nine, was five when she told him the truth.

Jon Brain reports.
