Daughter of Jane Birkin falls to death

The fashion photographer Kate Barry, daughter of the actress and singer Jane Birkin, has been found dead after falling from the window of her apartment in Paris.

Ms Barry (46), was the daughter of Ms Birkin and the composer John Barry, who wrote many of the themes for James Bond films. She fell from her fourth floor flat in Paris on Wednesday.

The flat was locked from the inside and no one else was present. Foul play is not suspected but an investigation is under way to decide whether the fall was an accident or whether Ms Barry took her own life. French police said that anti-depressant drugs were found at the scene.
