The mum of one had been planning a charity trek up Mount Snowdon in dad Ian’s honour.

Son Philip Bateman said: "She seemed to be well, she may have been a bit quieter than usual but nothing out of the ordinary.

“Her death was a complete shock. I think it was the accumulation of effects.

“The death of her own father against the background of her relationship break-up was too much for her.”

The inquest in Woking, Surrey, heard how Philip was awoken by text messages from his mother's ex-partner, asking if he had checked his emails.

After being alerted, Philip found a suicide note from his mother in his inbox.

Jane was in remission after being diagnosed with cancer in 2017.
