Breaking News#Woman ( Landon ) wins £13k in damages from dating agency

A woman who signed up to an elite dating agency to find a "sophisticated gentleman" has won damages of more than £13,000 after suing them for deceit and misrepresentation.

Divorcee Tereze Burki, 47, first approached Seventy Thirty in 2013 as she embarked on a search for a new partner.
She specified that she ideally wanted to be matched with someone employed in the finance industry, and it was important that he should lead a "wealthy lifestyle" and be "open to travelling internationally".
The most important thing for the mother-of-three was a willingness to have more children as she had always wanted four.
"Her requirements were not modest," said Judge Richard Parkes at the High Court in London.
Ms Burki, who lives in Chelsea, was encouraged by what she found out about Seventy Thirty, which describes itself as an "exclusive matchmaking and elite introduction service", and eventually went ahead at a cost of £12,600.
However, when the agency was unable to fulfil her requirements Ms Burki sought the return of her membership fee and damages for distress, while the agency sued her for libel and malicious falsehood in connection with two online reviews of its service.
