An inquest into the death of an Ipswich teenager has been adjourned so further evidence can be gathered.
Megan Younger-Watson, also known as Megan Haggar, 17, died in February 2019 at her home in Ipswich.
On February 16, 2019, officers from Suffolk police were called to Ms Younger-Watson’s home at the request of ambulance and other residents, after concerns that she may be self-harming.
Upon entry, Ms Younger-Watson was found dead by officers.
