Inheritance case woman Heather Ilott 'disappointed'
The Supreme Court has unanimously allowed an appeal by three animal charities who were left the bulk of £500,000 by a woman who cut her estranged daughter out of her will.
Heather Ilott was originally awarded £50,000 from her mother Melita Jackson's estate by a District Judge - which was raised to £160,000 by the Court of Appeal.
The charities challenged this and it has now been ruled she will receive only the original £50,000.
Her lawyer, Martin Oliver, gave his reaction after the ruling.
