Mr Rausing was arrested after Eva's body was found at the couple's home in Cadogan Place, Chelsea.

Mr Rausing, who stands to inherit a billion-pound fortune from his father's business, was taken into custody at a south London police station but has since been moved to a "medical facility", police said.
