Tragic schoolgirl Ursula texted mum to say 'I love you but so sorry'.

TRAGIC schoolgirl Ursula Keogh texted her mum to say "I love you but so sorry" on the day of her death, an inquest heard.

Ursula, 11, of Halifax, had a history of self harming, a brief hearing at Bradford Coroner's Court was told yesterday.

Her body was found beneath North Bridge in Halifax on Monday, January 22.

Her death was determined at 6.55pm that day and her body identified by her mum, Nicola Harlow.

Coroner's officer Bernard Tate told the court that Nicola reported her missing to police after receiving a text message.

Her body was found later that day beneath the bridge in a small river, said Mr Tate. Ursula's mobile phone was found on the bridge above where she was discovered.

Notes were later recovered which indicated "suicide ideation", the inquest heard.

Coroner David Urpeth said: "This is an utterly tragic case involving the death of a young girl. The circumstances surrounding the death have been submitted to police for investigation."

The inquest was adjourned and is expected to resume on May 22.
