Durham girl, 17, hanged herself amid fears she may have been groomed by an older man

Quinn Beadle, 17, spiralled into depression and hanged herself from a tree at the end of her street in Durham after it was alleged she was groomed by a 50-year-old man.

The parents described it as ‘just another day’, with the teenager baking and watching TV with her mother before ordering the takeaway.

But Quinn has been battling depression after it was alleged a man in his 50s groomed her over a three-month period in December 2016.

Her mother Tracey, 39, told the Mirror Online: ‘Quinn was our beautiful 17-year-old daughter, she was kind, funny, stubborn, quirky, crazy and amazing.

‘Sadly one day, she decided that life was just too hard for her. We saw a change in Quinn after this [grooming allegations]. She just went very secretive.
