Lord Lucan's son granted death certificate for missing peer


The only son of missing peer Lord Lucan has been granted a death certificate by a High Court judge.

George Bingham applied under the Presumption of Death Act, which came into effect in 2014, so he can inherit the title as 8th Earl.

Lord Lucan vanished after Sandra Rivett, nanny to his three children, was found murdered at the family home at 46 Lower Belgrave Street in central London on November 7 1974.

Mrs Justice Asplin gave a decision in the case in London on Wednesday.
