Angela Scoular In Suspected Suicide

British actress Angela Scoular died after allegedly drinking poisonous chemicals in a suspected suicide attempt, according to a U.K. report.
The wife of comedian Leslie Phillips was taken to hospital on Monday (11Apr11) after paramedics were called to deal with an emergency at the couple's London home. Doctors were unable to save her and she was later pronounced dead.
Police are treating her death as "unexplained" and detectives are currently investigating.
Reports suggest the former Bond girl, 65, who had been suffering from bowel cancer, took her own life by ingesting toxic chemicals, while Carry On star Phillips admits his wife was struggling to deal with her illness.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I didn't know she was going to take her own life. I suspected that it was a possibility because she had gone under, into this deep sadness. She had had a ghastly time.
"She never got free of the illness. I felt very sorry for her. Other illnesses had started to creep in. After three years of cancer she was always getting something else.
"She did her best but it got her down. Cancer takes you to the lowest places. It's a very tough thing to live with. She was weakened by the cancer and then depressed, deeply depressed. She was all over the place."
