The daughter of Commons deputy speaker Lindsay Hoyle was found dead in her room by her mother, an inquest has heard.

Natalie Lewis-Hoyle, 28, died at her home in Heybridge, near Maldon, Essex, on 15 December.

Essex coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray said Ms Lewis-Hoyle's mother, Maldon councillor Miriam Lewis, found her hanged.

Her parents have appealed for information about her final hours.

A provisional post-mortem examination gave the cause of her death as compression of the neck consistent with hanging, the inquest was told.

Adjourning the hearing, the coroner asked for a toxicology report and a report from the police.
