And it's £300,000 from me

Details of Ronnie Barker's will published

Ronnie Barker left £92,000 to his fugitive son Adam, a suspected paedophile.

The comic’s youngest son has been on the run for more than two years following his arrest on child pornography charges.

Despite the heartbreak, Barker’s insisted the £300, 000 he left be split equally between his three children

Adam is believed to be hiding out in France where his older brother Larry, 46, and sister Charlotte, 43, both live - although his family insist they have no idea where he is.

Details of Barker’s will were revealed today, and although the size of his estate seems small, experts say he might have more money in property which he could have signed over to his wife Joy in the years before his death in October aged 76.

A partner in the solicitors’ firm who handled Barker’s will told the Daily Mail that Adam was 'entitled' to his inheritance, adding: ‘I guess it will be invested for Adam until he puts his head above the parapet.’

Adam, 39, was arrested in June 2003 following a raid on his home in Ealing, West London, as part of the Operation Ore investigation into credit cards used to access child pornography on the internet.

But he failed to answer bail and a warrant for his arrest was issued in June 2004. He did not attend his father's funeral or memorial service in Westminster Abbey.
