A tribute has been paid to two brothers who died after falling through the roof of a family-owned property last week.

Keith, 65, and John Lambdon, 62, died on Tuesday August 20 at Highfields, Deppers Bridge, Southam, both were formally members of the Staverton Park Golf Club.

Reports from the Leamington coroner’s office suggest the men were doing repairs when they fell through a weak spot in the roof. The building they were working on is thought to be an outbuilding on farmland.

The deaths were certified at 6.05pm though it is believed they died approximately six hours before. The brothers were found by Keith Lambdon’s son.

President at the golf club Judith Pearson said: “As president and on behalf of Staverton Park Golf Club we extend our deepest sympathy to the Lambdon family on the deaths of John and Keith Lambdon Snr. John and Keith were both highly respected members of the club with John being the vice captain.

“We have no details of the tragedy other than knowing that both died in an accident at home. We at the club are all deeply shocked and will do all we can to support the family in any way we can.”
