Court decision highlights the importance of making a will
By Jill Rushton, will and probate solicitor at the national law firm Stephensons.

The decision by the Supreme Court to award £50,000 to 56-year-old Heather Ilott after her ten-year legal battle with three animal charities has been making the headlines.

The case has also thrown light on some interesting legal developments over years – the growth in bequests to charity and the rise in the number of contested wills.

But despite these developments, this case only reinforces how important it is that anyone over the age of 18 should draw up a will.

Training an elephant in countries such as India and Thailand in the interest of tourism can involve separating it from the mother and breaking its spirit in a process known as 'the crush' with long periods spent in chains. Yet tourism is just one of the threats to the safety of animals in the wild.

Romantic English Homes
Farm House – Northumberland
An extract from Romantic English Homes by Robert O’Byrne, published by CICO Books. Photography by Simon Brown.

Northumberland is England’s northernmost county, as well as being the most sparsely populated; there are only some 62 people per square kilometre. Being on the border with Scotland, this part of the country was for many centuries the scene of regular conflict, hence another local statistic is that Northumberland has the largest number of castles of any English county.
