An inquest into the tragic death of a teenager who fell 60ft from a high-rise Battersea flat is set to begin on Monday.

Chevonea Kendall-Bryan, 13, plunged to her death from the fifth floor of Seldon House, in Savona Street, in Battersea, on March 29, 2011.

Paramedics were called and rushed her to hospital shortly after she fell but she was later pronounced dead.

Miss Kendall-Bryan was a pupil at Saint Cecilia's school in Southfields.

Facebook messages posted by school pals immediately after the teenager's death suggested she had been the victim of bullying.

However her family have denied the youngster was being bullied - they believe she simply fell out of the window of the top floor flat.

The inquest will begin at 9.30am at North Westminster Coroner’s Court, Marylebone Road, on Monday and is set to last for a week.
