Les­bians’ di­vorce “done and dusted”

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A LES­BIAN cou­ple who were among the first in Bri­tain to en­ter a civil part­ner­ship, are fi­nal­is­ing their di­vorce.

Daphne Ligth­art, 36, and Liz King, 40, tied the knot at Ash­ford Reg­is­ter Of­fice in Fe­bru­ary 2006.

The cou­ple, who lived in Willes­bor­ough, are now in the fi­nal stages of their di­vorce af­ter a split last May, three months af­ter the cer­e­mony.

Ms Ligth­art, who works for Eurostar, said: “It is done and dusted and I wish her ev­ery hap­pi­ness. I would do it again, I have al­ways said that.”
