LORD CAITHNESS, the former government minister, told an inquest in Oxford yesterday that his wife had repeatedly threatened suicide before killing herself at the age of 40, writes Stephen Ward.

She was found dead at their home near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire on 8 January this year. A discharged shotgun was lying on her body.

Lady Caithness's family alleged the peer had formed a close friendship with Jan Fitzalan Howard in the year before his wife's death.
