A STUDENT upset by animal cruelty hanged herself from a tree, an inquest was told.
Jennifer Scott, 17, had a history of self-harm and mood swings for which her GP had unsuccessfully tried to persuade her to seek help.
Animal lover Jennifer, in her first year of a National Diploma in Animal Care at college, was found hanging from a tree at the end of Zan Drive, Sandbach, her home town in Cheshire.
An extensive police search had been launched the previous night after she went missing on the way to a friend's house.
Her mother, Wendy Scott, 50, called the police after reading her daughter's last diary entry, which suggested she was going to harm herself.
The family previously revealed Jennifer left a note saying she had taken her life because she was could not bear to live in a world full of animal cruelty.
