“They were always quite pleasant but private. They kept themselves to themselves. I don’t think they had children.
“I would often see Nigel walking his two Rottweilers past my house. I often chatted to him and he seemed perfectly nice. I think he’d retired.

DI Tristan Kluibenschadl of Kent Police told an inquest that a suicide note had been found in the car.
A post mortem examination confirmed the cause of death.
Detective Inspector Warren Hines of West Midlands Police said: “We are in the early stages of our investigation but it seems that the man has killed his wife before taking his own life.
“We are not looking for anyone else at present in connection with either death.”
Assistant coroner Kate Thomas sitting at the Archbishops’ Palace in Maidstone adjourned the inquest until January 23 for further reports.
