Daughter of Commons Deputy speaker hanged herself in her bedroom and was found by her mum.

The daughter of House of Commons deputy speaker Lindsay Hoyle was found hanged in her bedroom, an inquest has heard.

Natalie Lewis-Hoyle was found by her mother, Maldon councillor Miriam Lewis.

An ambulance was called and police attended the scene at the family home in Beeches Road, Heybridge on Friday, December 15.

At the opening of an inquest into her death this morning, a post mortem revealed that the 28-year-old died as a result of compression of the neck consistent with hanging.

Caroline Beasley-Murray, senior coroner, has not released the body so that toxicology and histology reports can be made.

Essex Police do not believe her death was suspicious, reports.

She listed her inquest for mention on Jan 8, 2018 to fix a date for a full inquest.

Mr Hoyle last week paid tribute to his ‘beautiful’ daughter after she died suddenly, aged 28.

The Labour MP for Chorley said his family would never be the same without Natalie.

In a tweet, Mr Hoyle – who was appointed deputy speaker in 2010 – wrote: “I am truly devastated by the death of our beautiful daughter Natalie. Our family will never be the same without our loving granddaughter, sister & aunty.

“Thank you for the kind support we’ve received it is overwhelming. Please continue to respect our privacy & allow us to grieve.”

On Saturday afternoon, Mrs Lewis took to Facebook to confirm her daughter’s death and ask anyone who spoke to Natalie in the hours before her death to come forward.

She posted: “It is with unbearable sadness that I have to announce the sudden death of my beautiful, much adored daughter Natalie.

“If Natty contacted you by phone, text, messenger or any other means on Thursday evening, 14 December, between 20.00 and midnight, please let me know through this page or contact A/Insp Jon Loudon at Essex Police incident no. 158.

“Any little scrap of information may be more relevant than you imagine.

“Her mobile phone is missing and may have been left of the 9.18pm from Liverpool Street to Ipswich on Thursday evening. If you found an iPhone please hand it in quoting Essex Police incident 158.

“Natalie is my only child – my mini-me.

“Please help me find out what happened to her in the hours before her death.”
