A woman who beat breast cancer hanged herself in her daughter's wardrobe after wrongly believing it had returned.

According to reports, dental nurse Dawn Cheetham, 43, had overcome the disease with chemotherapy in 2015 but became worried after she started developing pains and cramps in her stomach.

 

On July 15 this year, the mother-of-one had an argument with her partner Jonathan Mellor when he went out with his friends instead of having a date night with her.

She was later found dead at their home in Wardle, Greater Manchester, after he was forced to kick in the door when he found himself locked out of the house for over 24 hours.
