'I love you, so sorry' text of tragic girl, 11.

Byline: JEREMY ARMSTRONG

A GIRL of 11 with a history of self-harm texted her mother "I love you but so sorry" on the day she was found dead in a river, an inquest heard.

Notes found after Ursula Keogh's death "indicated suicide ideation", the court was told.

Ursula's mother, novelist Nicola Harlow, 52, alerted the police after receiving the text and the girl's body was discovered in Halifax on January 22.

David Urpeth, presiding at Bradford coroner's court, said it was "an utterly tragic case" and adjourned it until April 10.

Halifax's Lightcliffe Academy, where Ursula was a pupil, called her death "heartbreaking", adding: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Ursula's family and friends."
