Police have told an inquest into 14-year-old Hannah Smith's death that the teenager may have posted abusive online messages to herself before she was found hanged in her bedroom.
Hannah's parents say the teenager was regularly bullied on website Ask.fm before she took her own life in August last year.
But Detective Sergeant Wayne Simmons, of Leicestershire Police, said that on the "balance of probabilities" the "vile" messages about Hannah on the social media site were posted by the teenager herself in the run-up to her death.
