A letter written by the teen, from Harrow, North West London, about self-harming was read out by coroner Andrew Walker.

It says: “‘I don’t know what is wrong with me.

“I didn’t have a reason to be depressed, so what is wrong with me?”

Dr Navin Venugopal said children are particularly vulnerable between the ages of 12 and 16.

He told the North London hearing: “The content is very disturbing and distressing.

“It certainly affected her behaviour for weeks bearing in mind she saw this over a period of time.

“These videos kept me up at night.”

The inquest continues.
