    Its also called 'single cream' or  'Half & Half''.

    10% milk fat. or 12 or 18. But generally 10%.

    Heavy cream is 35-40%.

    I would use Half and Half  as a substitute for Lt. Cream.

    Use Half and Half.  

    The actual Half and Half not half heavy cream (or whipping cream as it is also called) and half milk. that does not really make Half and Half.

    Unless it is marked Light cream, just use half-n-half. In the US Heavy cream is also called Whipping cream-in the UK it would be called Double Cream. You may also see Coffee Cream, but do not use Coffee Creamer as this is different.

    In the US,"light cream" would be equivalent to half & half.What that is called elsewhere idk.

    Pick the one with the lowest fat content.  It should be less than whipping cream.  It might be labelled "coffee cream" where you live.  Half-and-half will do too.
