Tragic father killed himself.

A FATHER fighting depression killed himself while on a family getaway after witnessing the accidental death of his wife four days earlier, orphaning the couple's children.

Roger Lamb, 47, was said to have had mental health problems in the weeks leading up to the holiday to Morocco last August, in which his wife Mathilde, 43, plunged to her death.

She was said to have fallen after leaning over a window ledge at the family's holiday accommodation when she was disturbed by noise in the streets below.

Her husband tried to drown himself in a nearby harbour following the tragedy, but was rescued by local men.

His children - who cannot be identified for legal reasons - said Mr Lamb's mood initially picked up before he fell to his death on August 21.
