Anti-bullying campaigner Roger Crouch found dead

An anti-bullying campaigner whose 15-year-old son killed himself a year ago has been found dead at his home.

Police were called to Roger Crouch's home in Gretton, near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, following "concerns over the welfare of a man".

Mr Crouch was a former director of Gloucestershire children's services and Stow-on-the-Wold town clerk.

His son, Dominic, died when he jumped off a building near his school, St Edwards, in Charlton Kings in May 2010.

Mr Crouch took up his anti-bullying cause after it emerged at his son's inquest that rumours had started before his death that Dominic might be gay.

Mr Crouch's wife Paola paid tribute to her husband on Facebook, saying his work would be remembered.

"The changes you have started, for young people everywhere, the work you have done against bullying will remain as a towering monument to you," she posted.

A Gloucestershire Police spokeswoman said it was not treating the incident as suspicious and the coroner had been informed.
