Pole dancer, 27, who was 'never happy' with the way she looked hanged herself after texting her mum 'I can't go on'

A POLE dancer who was "never happy" with the way she looked hanged herself after texting her mum saying "I can't go on".

Bethany Dove, 27, who also worked at a SPAR shop, was found dead near her home in Looe, Cornwall in June.

Her mum Glenda said Bethany had plastic surgery on her nose and teeth but "never liked her appearance", an inquest heard today.

Mrs Dove said Bethany was a "sensitive girl" who had not had much luck with relationships and only ever wanted to settle down.

She said Bethany was a "bubbly personality who loved parties and was popular".

Bethany had constant arguments with her boyfriend Blake Donnellan and in the hours before she was found hanged in the woods she exchanged texts with her mum and boyfriend.

She also posted on social media about being kind because "you never know what someone is going through".

She left suicide notes at her mum's home, and sent Glenda a text message saying: "I can't go on. I love you. Please read the letters. I love you so much, I cannot find happiness. I don't want to go on like this."

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

Mrs Dove said: "She was never happy with herself. She had her teeth and nose done but was never happy."

She also told her boyfriend that she loved him, saying: "I am not being silly, I want to go now."

A police dog handler found Bethany hanged from a tree in the woods.

Cops said there were no suspicious circumstances. Bethany was recognised by her distinctive tattoos.

The Truro inquest heard she did not suffer with depression.

The acting senior coroner for Cornwall Andrew Cox concluded she had taken her own life.
