Terry Lubbock, 76, whose son Stuart Lubbock, 31, died at Barrymore's then home in Roydon, Essex, in March 2001, said earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Mr Lubbock, a retired toolmaker who lived in Harlow, Essex, had mounted a 20-year campaign for justice for his son.

His friend, and publicist, Harry Cichy said he had died on Wednesday and paid tribute.
