A suicide note and pictures of Miss Baker were found in a bedroom of the Baker Road house.

Dr Dean heard how the 27-year-old printer had fallen into a deep depression after the relationship broke down.

But despite his son's ups and downs, Mr Robinson's father was still stunned by his apparent suicide.

He said: "Kevin suffered from bad mood swings but was usually very loving.

"It came as a great shock to me that he had been found dead."

The court heard how three weeks before his death Mr Robinson had broken down at work and was prescribed anti-depressants.

He continued to phone Miss Baker every day, telling her he wanted to get back with her.

On June 23 he phoned and told her he had been at the Orwell Bridge and the police had to be called out.

A few days later on June 26 he called her again but she was driving and unable to talk. This was the last she heard from him.

Dr Dean recorded a verdict of suicide.
