Evidence against Lord Lucan ‘weak and circumstantial’ says new Countess

8 Oct

Evidence that Lord Lucan murdered his children’s nanny before disappearing is only weak the new Lady Lucan has declared, as she said the family is trying to make a fresh start from the notorious mystery.

Anne-Sofie Foghsgaard, the 8th Countess of Lucan, said she wanted to rebrand the family which remains overshadowed by the 1974 crime.

Lady Lucan, who married George Bingham, the only son of ‘Lucky Lucan’ the seventh Earl, said the missing aristocrat’s children “adored him” and had never accepted his guilt.

Richard John Bingham disappeared without trace on November 7, 1974, after the family’s nanny, Sandra Rivett, was beaten to death at his Belgravia home.

His estranged wife was also attacked, but managed to escape, and she named her husband as her assailant.
