Killer's slain twin was 'the kindest man'

David Bird, thought to have been the first victim of his twin brother Derrick, was "the kindest man", a neighbour said today.

A police guard remained at Mr Bird's large property at High Trees Farm, Lamplugh, Cumbria, today as relatives were seen coming and going.

The farmer had sold part of his land for a development of four detached homes.

A householder there said today: "It is a dreadful shock. I had known David for years. He was a wonderful neighbour and the kindest man.

"He would do anything for anybody."
