Jowell: Separation from David Mills 'broke my heart'

Dame Tessa Jowell has told how the separation from her husband David Mills, after he became involved in a financial scandal involving Silvio Berlusconi, "broke her heart".

Lawyer Mr Mills was convicted of perjury in his absence in February 2009. He was acquitted a year later by the Italian Supreme Court under the country's statute of limitations.

In an interview with Jane Garvey, Dame Tessa told BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour about the effect the separation from her husband had on her life.
