The parents of a woman who overdosed on diet pills have rejected a coroner’s finding of suicide.

Beth Shipsey, 21, died after taking pills containing highly-toxic DNP in 2017.

Worcestershire coroner Geraint Williams concluded Ms Shipsey intended to take her own life and “d have died” regardless of medical failings.

But her father Doug said her death “was a miscalculation, a huge mistake. It was another cry for help”.
