- It is yet more tragedy for a family beset by grief over mother-of-three Leah
The family of a mother who died after a £6,500 Brazilian bottom lift at a Turkish clinic has been hit by another wave of grief after her father was also found dead.
Leah Cambridge, 29, from Leeds, died on the operating table in 2018 at the Elite Aftercare Clinic in Izmir, favoured by the cast of The Only Way Is Essex.
She suffered a blood clot during the procedure on August 27, one day after travelling to an Elite Aftercare clinic in Turkey, her inquest was told.
Now her father Craig Cambridge has also died. Tributes have been paid to the ‘top bloke’ who was found by his other daughter on Easter Monday.
The family, from Leeds in West Yorkshire, are devastated at the double loss.
Leah’s widower and partner of ten years, Scott Franks, wrote today: ‘Rest in peace Craig Cambridge, one top bloke.
‘I’ll never forget all the times you was there for me. We all love you so much, take care of Leah now mate.’

Relatives say that Leah’s father Craig ‘never got over’ the tragic passing of his daughter three years ago.
He is said to have struggled with his grief before his body was discovered by his daughter yesterday.
The Sun reports in January Craig posted a picture on Facebook with the words: ‘I miss me. The old me. The happy me.
Now in a double tragedy for the Cambridge family, Leah’s father Craig has also been found dead on Easter Monday
‘The smiling me. The laughing me. The gone me.’
After his death yesterday a relative told the publication: ‘He was found by his daughter. It’s just more heartbreak for the family.’
Craig’s niece Lisa Cambridge added: ‘Just can’t believe it. Absolutely heartbroken.’
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: ‘At 7.34pm on Monday, police were called to an address in Halton where a man had been found dead.
‘There were no suspicious circumstances and the Coroner’s Office has been informed.’
In 2018 Miss Cambridge, who worked as a beautician, followed the likes of reality TV stars Lauren Goodger and Amber Dowding in opting for the Turkish clinic.
The 29-year-old attended the clinic for a £6,500 Brazilian bum lift on August 27.
The trainee beauticia, who was ‘paranoid about her body’, was inspired to pay £6,500 in cash for the operation after seeing photographs on Instagram.
Other reality stars to have had surgery there includes The Only Way is Essex star Georgia Kousoulou, who had a nose job there.

The so-called ‘Brazilian butt-lift’ procedure involves taking fat from the waist or the stomach and injecting it into the bottom.
Dr Ali Uckan, (pictured) who carried out the surgery at the private hospital in Turkey, later said they had ‘no concerns’ over their surgeons or standards of care
It serves as an alternative to buttock augmentations using implants and is believed to offer a safer way of plumping your bottom due to the ‘natural’ fat used, which minimises the risk of silicon rejection.
But Miss Cambridge, who was a mother of three boys, is suffered complications very soon into the procedure.
She suffered a fatal complication when blood fat was accidentally injected into a vein and caused her to have three heart attacks on the operating table.
Ms Cambridge’s partner Scott Franks told Wakefield Coroner’s Court in 2019 the surgeon who carried out the procedure told him he had ‘injected the fat too far into the muscle and it entered her veins.’
Doctors and nurses were unable to save her. Dr Ali Uckan, who carried out the surgery at the private hospital in Turkey, later said they had ‘no concerns’ over their surgeons or standards of care.
