Dad took his own life after daughter, 29, died from botched Brazilian bum lift
A dad took his own life after his 29-year-old daughter died from a botched Brazilian bum lift operation.
Craig Cambridge was found dead at his home in Leeds last year, three years after Leah Cambridge's cosmetic surgery operation went tragically wrong.
Leah died in Izmir, Turkey from a pulmonary embolism after Dr Ali Uckan at Can Hastanesi Hospital accidentally injected fat into her veins, resulting in her having three heart attacks on the operating table.

Craig, 51, was never able to get over her death, an inquest heard yesterday.
Senior coroner Kevin McLoughlin told Wakefield Coroners Court how Craig had struggled with alcohol dependency and depression after his daughter's death, and continued to 'spiral downwards' after that day in August 2018.
And, on April 5, 2021, the partner of Craig's other daughter Chelsea found him dead in his attic, reports LeedsLive.
Mr McLoughlin, who conducted the inquests for both Leah and Craig's deaths, said he would be writing to both Doctor Ali Uckan and Turkish medical authorities to make them aware of the grief the surgery caused.
He said to Craig's daughters Hayley and Chelsea and his ex-partner Theresa Hall: "Normally I am quite detached and hard-hearted about inquests, but when I saw another tragedy had befallen your family, I felt quite grievous.
"Having conducted the inquest into Leah all those years ago, I was incensed that the surgeon in Turkey stood well clear.
"I am proposing to send the report to the surgeon and the medical authorities in Turkey to make them aware of how a tragedy manifests itself years later.
"I feel dreadfully sorry for you as a family."

Craig, a former personal trainer, had a history of depression and anxiety. He was on anti-depressants and was under the care of a community mental health team following the loss of Leah.
Police also found he had tried to call his doctor three times the morning he took his own life – but the surgery was not open due to it being a bank holiday.
The clinic Leah went to claims to have worked with celebrities like Chloe Ferry, Lauren Goodger and Amber Dowding. The operation consists of taking fat from areas of the body and injecting it into the buttocks.

Dr Uckan did speak at Leah's inquest in 2019, where he called the operation "a guessing game", while Mr McLoughlin branded him a "coward" for not answering her family's questions.
The coroner said that he had written to the doctor eight times since to ask him to give evidence at Craig's inquest – but got no response.
A verdict of suicide was returned.
