'Landmark' case for pre-nuptial agreements

The UK Supreme Court has ruled that a pre-nuptial agreement is binding in the case of a German paper company heiress.

Katrin Radmacher's ex-husband Nicolas Granatino went to the Supreme Court after appeal judges slashed his divorce settlement from more than £5m to £1m.

The Supreme Court said it agreed that in the right case such agreements can have decisive or compelling weight.
