Mother-in-law from hell or defender of nation's manners?

Relationships with your in-laws are not always easy.

But when one bride-to-be visited her fiance's parents in Devon the visit turned into something of a public disaster.

Her future mother-in-law sent her a furious e-mail complaining about her "staggering" bad manners and "lack of grace".

The 29-year-old was so shocked she sent it on to friends and now it is an internet sensation.

Jon Kay reports.
