Calls For Tighter Drug Controls After Manchester Teenager Takes Own Life

27 February 2013, 15:09

A coroner has said more needs to be done to limit the availability of harmful drugs online after a Manchester teenager took her own life.

16-year-old Isobel Narayan was found dead by her parents in Didsbury in December 2011.

Manchester Coroner's Court heard how she'd ordered a drug online and looked up forums giving guidance on assisted suicide for people with terminal illness.

Coroner Nigel Meadows said policing the internet was 'virtually impossible' but it was a 'matter of public concern' that Isobel was able to get hold of the drug.

He said he'd be writing to the relevant authorities to see if anything could be done.
