In what is a land mark ruling that Miss Wyatt can pursue financial claims against her former husband, Mr Vince, despite the fact that some 23 years has elapsed since they were divorced. In a landmark ruling, the Supreme Court backed the right of Miss Wyatt to make a claim on the £110m fortune that he earned after they had separated.
