A soldier who suffered brain damage in a Taliban attack welcomes a judge's divorce ruling that prevented his wife receiving most of what's left of his compensation payments.


A wife who divorced a severely wounded soldier after ‘wasting’ a large part of his £1 million compensation has lost her legal battle to get her hands on what was left of the cash.

Simon Vaughan, 31, was badly brain damaged and unable to walk or speak properly after the vehicle he was travelling in was blown up by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2008.

He received more than £1 million in compensation from the Ministry of Defence, which was intended to pay for his long-term care.
