Bigamist's "cancer treatment" lie conceals his double life

A mother-of-three from Eastbourne has spoken of her shock at finding out her husband had been secretly married to another woman.

Michael Eels told his wife Andrea he had to go away to receive care for cancer, but it was a lie so he could spend time with his other wife.

The two women found out about each other through Facebook.

Eels has now been jailed for three months for the offence of bigamy, as Malcolm Shaw now reports.
