Stuart Lubbock's dad Terry dies of cancer after never getting justice for son who drowned in Michael Barrymore's pool

THE campaigning dad of Stuart Lubbock has died without ever seeing justice for his son found dead in Michael Barrymore’s pool.

Gravely-ill Terry had battled for 20-years to bring tragic Stuart Lubbock’s killers to justice after he was sexually assaulted and left for dead at the Strike it Lucky star’s mansion in 2001.

The dedicated dad, 76, died this morning at 9.15am at his care home, in Harlow, Essex.

Close pal and campaigner Harry Cicky said: “Terry will be greatly missed by me and so many others.

“He was a dedicated father and a true champion of justice in this country, even though he never got any establishment recognition.

“He dedicated his life to finding the truth doggedly staying focused. He always thought there was a someone protecting the guilty. Thank you Terry Lubbock.”

His son Stuart Lubbock died at Barrymore's then home in Roydon, Essex, on March 31 2001.

Grandfather Terry dedicated his life to the fight for truth and had hoped to see a defendant stand trial over the claims when Essex Police arrested a suspect earlier this year.

But his final hopes were dashed when the man, 50, of Cheshire was released without charge.

Before his death Terry, who died from cancer, had continued to demand a fresh inquest into Stuart’s death in the hope of unearth fresh evidence that might assist police.

Stuart, 31, suffered internal injuries during a party at the star's then home in Roydon, Essex, on March 31, 2001.

The injuries suggested he had been sexually assaulted.

Eight guests and TV host Barrymore, now 69, were at the party.

No-one had ever been charged in relation to the offences.

Barrymore previously spoke out about Lubbock's quest for justice and says it's a "terribly sad situation".

Speaking to the Mirror, Barrymore said: “It’s a terribly sad situation for everybody.”

In March, cops said a witness had given them “significant new information” about the case.

In June, Barrymore was quizzed by cops for the second time surrounding Stuart's death.

In February, Mr Lubbock said doctors had told him that he had months to live.

He said all he lived for was to get "justice for Stuart", but accepts he may never get the answers he wants.
