Verdict of death by misadventure for teen killed by tree

An inquest into the death of a Kent schoolgirl, who was killed when a tree fell onto the caravan she was sleeping in, has recorded a verdict of death by misadventure.

Bethany Freeman, who was 17-years-old, died when a 30ft tree fell on the mobile home last October in Hever.

Bethany was pronounced dead at the scene following efforts to try and revive her.

Coroner Roger Hatch expressed his sympathy to the family, saying Bethany's death happened during extremely high winds which adversely affected the tree which "unfortunately and tragically landed on the caravan."
