'If you get this message it is too late and I am sorry. I am sorry I have broken my promise'.

The family of Megan Hoyle have remembered their "happy, cheeky, bubbly" girl after being told her death was suicide.

14-year-old Megan was found unconscious in February with pills around her - she sadly died four days later in hospital.

At the inquest into her death yesterday (20/6/17), the coroner confirmed she'd taken her own life.

On the morning of the overdose Megan had messaged one of her friends with a suicide letter, that was so moving the coroner said it would stick with him for years.

In it Megan spoke about her love for her family and friends - but said she wanted to end her life.

Writing  'If you get this message it is too late and I am sorry. I am sorry I have broken my promise. I am sorry I'm not strong enough. Please don't hate me'

Megan's family have told us they've had a lot of questions answered.

Older brother Lee and sister Becky spoke to 2BR after the result.

They tell us how they'll remember their little sister;

"She was the family favourite, the baby who got everything she wanted.

"She had a lot of friends - that was evident at the funeral, never seen so many people.

"Her loss has affected more than just the family".

The coroner said Megan's case would be one he remembered forever - because of how intelligent and awe-inspiring she was.

Lee and Becky said things like that make all the difference;

"Wherever she went, she made an impact.

"That's one thing we can take with us.

"As long as we live, she'll live".
