The Heyford Park Free School pupil had been playing near her home in Upper Heyford, near Bicester, on Sunday September 8.

She had gone out to play with a friend and was climbing a tree when it is thought that her bike helmet became caught in a branch, leading to the tragedy.

The inquest was opened by the head coroner for Oxfordshire, Darren Salter, on September 24.

At the time he said the investigation was still in its early stages.
