  • Posted

Ruth Simmonds, the “secret daughter” of an entrepreneur who made a £2m fortune is fighting for a share of his estate.

Ken Jordan died aged 75 and left "every penny" to his new partner, the cousin of his wife, the High Court heard. Lawyers for Ms Simmonds argued there were “real doubts” over Mr Jordan’s mental ability to make a valid will in the months before he died. Judge Edward Murray is noted to have reserved ruling until the New Year. Evening Standard, Page: 11 The Sun, Page: 11
