Lu­can’s son says he did go to Africa

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE son of fugi­tive Lord Lu­can has con­firmed that he WAS sent on a trip to Africa, where it is claimed the miss­ing Earl would watch him from a dis­tance.

Ge­orge Bing­ham, the 8th Lord Lu­can, said he re­mem­bers go­ing to Kenya around 1985, but “to his knowl­edge” he didn’t meet him in per­son.

Speak­ing to The Times about the Kenya trip, Ge­orge Bing­ham said: ‘The air­line tick­ets, sa­fari ex­penses and ho­tels, as re­gards my­self, were paid for by my fam­ily trust.’

But he de­nies ever con­sciously meet­ing his fa­ther ( above), say­ing: “I have not, to the best of my knowl­edge, seen my fa­ther since Novem­ber 1974.

“To sug­gest that I have met and spo­ken with my fa­ther...is to make me a pos­si­ble ac­ces­sory, af­ter the fact, to a grisly mur­der ...is to call me a crim­i­nal and it is thus a most se­ri­ous li­bel.”

Lu­can van­ished af­ter the mur­der of his chil­dren’s nanny, San­dra Rivett, on Novem­ber 7, 1974.

Highly in­tel­li­gent.

Could use his in-depth knowl­edge of laws of physics to give an ad­van­tage. Good ne­go­tia­tor. Cheap salary, es­pe­cially kit bud­get.

His­tory of stand­ing up to strong English sec­tion.
