 A “happy and outgoing” 12-year-old girl hanged herself in protest after being sent to bed for arguing with her brother about use of the family computer, an inquest ruled yesterday.

Jessica Jevons was found hanging by a pink dressing gown chord by her twin brother Patrick on the landing of the family home 15 minutes after a “demonstration of annoyance”, Bolton Coroners Court heard. She was already dead.

Police concluded that she had positioned herself so that the next person to ascend the staircase would be “shocked into responding”.
