A re­port writ­ten by con­sul­tant psy­chi­a­trist Dr Robert Sam­mut re­vealed Maxine Oven­den had been bul­lied as a child due to be­ing over­weight and as a re­sult suf­fered from low self-es­teem and tended to self-harm when drunk.

Ms Oven­den told the doc­tor she had no rec­ol­lec­tion of the fall last year.

When the psy­chi­a­trist last saw Ms Oven­den she said she was look­ing for­ward to spend­ing Christ­mas with her brother, which she did.

The pa­tient said she was not feel­ing sui­ci­dal but could not com­ment on whether she would self­harm in the fu­ture.
