Pair died after 'suicide pact'

A man and a woman who died in a suspected suicide pact in Essex are believed to have met online on a forum for people contemplating suicide.

Stephen Lumb, 35, of Sowerby Bridge, 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.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
