LONDON: Quantity surveyor Kevin Parkes filed a lawsuit for £30,000 to recover money that he had spent on former lover Mary Morley during their years together between 1995 and 1998, during which she gave birth to his son. Included on Parkes' documents were items including £3 for a door lock, £7 for an oil filter and £13 for motor oil.
