articlemain

Sir Terence Etherton has been appointed Master of the Rolls, the second most senior judge in England and Wales.

He is the third Jewish holder of the office in a row, succeeding Lord Dyson, who retires in October, and Lord Neuberger.

The West London Synagogue, who is 64, was one of the first to celebrate a Jewish same-sex wedding when he married his partner Andrew Stone at the synagogue in 2014.

Called to the bar in 1974, he became a QC in 1990, made a High Court judge in 2001 and a Lord Justice of Appeal seven years later. He became head of the Chancery division three years ago.

He was once a member of the British sabre team.
