She said that Miss Lewis-Hoyle was found hanging in a bedroom by her mother, Miriam Lewis, who is a Maldon district councillor for the Conservative Party.
An ambulance was called and Miss Lewis-Hoyle’s death was confirmed.
A post-mortem examination gave the medical cause of death as compression of the neck consistent with hanging.
Miss Lewis-Hoyle’s father, who is a Labour MP for Chorley in Lancashire, said that he was “truly devastated” by the death of his daughter.
