AN employment lawyer who died at his Hampstead High Street office is believed to have killed himself.

Henryk Santocki, 37 - also known as Scott - was discovered by police at the Hampstead offices of CKFT solicitors in the early hours of January 9.

The death of the well-respected legal expert came as a shock to colleagues. Graham Kaye, a partner at the firm, said: "Until the inquest we cannot make any suppositions about what happened.

"We were not aware of any particular stress that Scott was under at work." An inquest is due at St Pancras Coroner's Court.
