A coroner criticised mental health services for "failing" to provide proper care to a concert violinist who died just a week after giving evidence against her predatory former choirmaster.
Coroner Richard Travers demanded that new rules are put in place to ensure that vulnerable witnesses are given better support when they face often traumatic trials, at the inquest into the death of Frances Andrade.
Delivering his verdict, he said that Andrade was "extremely traumatised" after testifying about abuse she suffered as a teenager at the hands of ex-Chetham's School of Music choirmaster Michael Brewer and his wife Hilary, also 68.
However, he could not be sure she intended to kill herself and ruled out a verdict of suicide.
Nonetheless he said he would be writing three reports - two to the Director of Public Prosecutions and one to the local health service to call for changes in the wake of the inquest.
