The four-minute hearing began at Poplar Coroner's Court. There were no members of Flack's family in attendance.

In court, coroner's officer Sandra Polson said police were driving through Northwold Road, Stoke Newington, on Saturday, February 15 when they were flagged down.

She added that when emergency services arrived at her flat in East London, she was "found lying on her back, she had apparently been found hanging.”
