A MUM from Beaconsfield killed herself by overdosing on anti-depressant drugs, an inquest heard.

Toni Hegarty, of Stile Meadow, had suffered from depression for about six years and had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the Bucks coroner heard on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old, who was unemployed, was found lying on the floor in her flat by friend Kelly Harvey on September 1 last year.

Coroner Richard Hulett, sitting at High Wycombe Law Courts, said a note had been found and though not dated, it was "very final in its terms".

He said the levels of the two anti-depressant drugs in her system were "very very high", before returning a verdict that she took her own life.
