Father speaks of shock at son's suspected suicide pact

Melvyn Lumb has spoken to the BBC about his son Stephen Lumb who died in a suspected suicide pact in Essex.

He said he had no indication that his son may have been looking at an online forum for people contemplating suicide.

Stephen Lumb, 35, of Sowerby Bridge in Yorkshire and Joanne Lee, 34, of Great Notley, Essex were found inside a car in Essex on Monday.

Messages which Ms Lee posted on an internet forum appeared to suggest she wanted a partner for a suicide pact.
