Caroline Flack’s sister tried to give her CPR

The first witness statement was from Stephen Teasdale, the father of Flack’s friend Louise.

We were giving CPR for somewhere between five and ten minutes.

He explained he went to the scene after Jody phoned to stay she couldn’t get into the presenter’s flat.

Mr Teasdale said: “We came to the flat and tried to force entry.

“We thought about phoning the police but knew the landlady… We got the key and let ourselves into the flat.”

Mr Teasdale said he found Flack’s body, hanged.

He added: “I brought her [down] and Jody started CPR. We were giving CPR for somewhere between five and ten minutes, then the police took over.”

Caroline’s mum pays tribute

Meanwhile, during the inquest, Flack’s mother Chris paid tribute to her “lovely” daughter.

She said: “Through all of this Caroline was told not to speak, not to tell her side of the story.

“The only person who was hurt that night was Caroline.”

Chris added:  “When I said goodbye to her that day I never thought it would be for the last time. I believe she was heartbroken.”

She was due to stand trial on March 4, 2020, after pleading not guilty to the charges.

However, she took her own life in February.

Meanwhile, in today’s inquest, it was revealed that one of the paramedic crew found a handwritten letter placed on the coffee table at Flack’s home.

The note had ‘Lewis’ written on it, seemingly for Lewis Burton.

At court, PC Tim Child said there was also evidence of suicide attempts elsewhere in the property.
