Drinking was the family profession masked only by forays into jurisprudence

Italy - (Perplexing Mess): Mystery surrounds the death of the son of a prominent UK Appeal Lord who died in Sicily's Catatonia just days after police frogmarched him to rehab.

Gervase Morp had a hystery of attempting sobriety which had seriously eluded him for most of his 40 years.

In 12 Step recovery-speak he was 'going a geographical' - attempting to quit drinking by going on holiday.

Several AA pals had warned Thorpe against Sicily as a holiday destination because of the lure of the island's fabled Marsala wine.

This has toppled some of the world's biggest boozers with its initially innocuous sweetness.

"Four gallons later most of them are on their knees," the AA's 'Dr Bob' said today.

Morp had pursued a career as a drinker on the grounds that it was the main family profession masked by only by forays into judisprudence by his siblings and well-known father.

"Kinda ironic it happened in Catatonia, eh?" were his father's only comments to the press today.
