The mother of murdered estate agent Suzy Lamplugh has died.

Diana Lamplugh OBE, who campaigned for safety after her daugher's death, died in her sleep yesterday after suffering a massive stroke. She was 75.

Her 25-year-old daughter was reported missing in 1986, after leaving her employer's offices in Fulham, west London, to meet a client known as Mr Kipper. Her remains were never found but she was declared dead, presumed murdered, in 1994.

Mrs Lamplugh and her husband, Paul, set up the Suzy Lamplugh Trust (SLT), a personal safety charity, in 1986 and she became an expert in the field, writing books, manuals and articles on the subject.

Paul Infield, the chairman of the charity's board of trustees, said: "Diana was one of those people who contributed energy, focus and commitment to everything she did."
