Veteran Labour politician Roy Hattersley divorced at 80

Divorce|News | 12 Apr 2013 0

Veteran Labour politician Roy Hattersley has divorced at the age of 80.

The former Deputy Leader was granted a decree nisi by District Judge Heather MacGregor at the Principal Registry of the Family Division in London earlier today.

According to a report in the Yorkshire Post, case papers state that Hattersley and his wife have been separated for five years and their marriage has “irretrievably broken down”.

The former couple are reported to have married in 1956.

Hattersley did not attend the hearing and told the paper he did not wish to comment.

The once high profile politician became MP for Birmingham Sparkbrook in 1964 and served as Deputy Leader of the Labour Party under Neil Kinnock between 1983 and 1992.
