Bond Composer's Daughter Kate Barry Dies

Kate Barry, the daughter of James Bond composer John Barry and actress Jane Birkin, has died after falling from her Paris apartment.

Police said the 46-year-old photographer was found on Wednesday and investigations into her death are ongoing.

It is believed that anti-depressants were found and that the front door was locked.

Her famous parents separated the year of her birth in 1967 and she was brought up until her teenage years by Birkin and her partner, French singer Serge Gainsbourg.

Her father, John Barry, who composed 11 of the James Bond soundtracks, died in 2011.

She was also the half-sister of the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Barry's photos were featured in British Vogue and the Sunday Times magazine, and were recently in an exhibition in Paris.

She also set up an addiction treatment centre outside Paris after previously struggling with drink and drugs when she was a teenager.
