The newspaper proprietor Richard Desmond was divorced by his wife of 27 years yesterday.

Neither the 58-year-old Express Group boss nor Janet Desmond attended the Principal Registry of the High Court's Family Division in London. Mrs Desmond was granted a decree nisi by District Judge Anne Aitken under the special procedure rule, on the grounds of her husband's unreasonable behaviour.
