A sperm donor who said he believed a lesbian couple were looking for a 'co-parent' has lost a High Court battle to spend time with his six-year-old daughter.

Mrs Justice Theis concluded contact between the child and her biological father would not meet the 'welfare needs' of the girl, whose parents are two women who were in a civil partnership. 

She added the unidentified man has a 'somewhat blinkered reliance on general rights' and had been 'unable to engage' with the girl's 'reality now'.

Mrs Theis outlined her conclusions in a written ruling, published following a private family court hearing in London.
