A jealous "wifelet" of the practising polygamist Lord Bath has been arrested after fighting with a love rival, it was revealed yesterday.
Police were called to the 18th-century stately home of Longleat, Wiltshire, in the middle of the night after allegations of a serious domestic assault. Officers found two female guests rowing over the affections of Alexander Thynn, the 79-year-old 7th Marquess of Bath.
One woman was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and the other taken to hospital with cuts and a suspected broken nose.
A source said that the women had been fighting over who "should sleep with the peer".
Wiltshire Police confirmed the facts of the "altercation".Reuse content
