THE 24-year-old daughter of a Labour MP died in her flat of complications from her diabetes.

Sian Howarth, whose father is George Howarth, MP for Knowsley North and Sefton East, was found by her flatmate on September 27, after passing away in her sleep, W estminster Coroner's Court was told.

Sian, a teacher who was not working at the time of her death, had struggled to come to terms with her Type One diabetes, which was diagnosed in February, 1999.

In a statement, her GP, Dr Orkiekwe, said: "I was really shocked to learn that she had died. I thought Sian was really coming to terms with her condition and managing her medication effectively."

Sian had spent the evening of September 26 at home in Victoria, London, with her flatmate, Chloe Green, a trained nurse.

A post mortem showed no clear sign of a cause of death. Coroner Dr Fiona Wilcox recorded a verdict of natural causes.
