LORD LOVAT, the Second World War hero, suffered tragedy for the second time in two weeks yesterday when his elder son, Simon Fraser, Master of Lovat, collapsed and died while riding. Mr Fraser, 54, was taking part in a drag hunt, a bloodless sport in which a scent is laid for the hounds, near the family seat of Beaufort Castle, near Inverness, when he became unwell. A local doctor pronounced him dead.

Lord Lovat last week attended the funeral of his younger son, Andrew, 42, gored to death by a buffalo while on safari in Africa two weeks ago.
