Grace Brockelsby Investigation about why she was suffered mental problems

A collision investigation found that the lorry was travelling at or about the 40mph speed limit and Mr Gibbins was not at fault in any way.

He had stepped on his brakes, sounded the horn and flashed his lights.

The inquest was told that Grace Brockelsby had gone into the road when he was 26 metres away. The lorry would have needed between 41 and 59 metres to stop.

The teenager regularly told mental health care professionals of her frequent suicidal thoughts.

However, she had shown no sign of ever acting upon them and had expressed that she would not because she did not want to upset her family.

Where to get help and what to do if you’re worried about mental health issues

Where to get help and what to do if you’re worried about mental health issues

If you’re not feeling yourself, going through a bad time, or are just feeling sad more than usual, it’s possible that you could be experiencing depression or anxiety.

This doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily at risk, there are scales of both, and it could be that you are just experiencing low mood or moderate anxiety.

The most important thing to do is to let people around you know how you’re feeling.

Talking to a partner, family member or friend is essential. They may be able to offer support and can be there for you while you go through a difficult time.

Where can I get help?

You should also go to talk to your GP.

Your GP can help find out if you’re experiencing anxiety, stress and depression.

They can recommend ways to feel better naturally, for example increasing your exercise levels, or can suggest medication and counselling.

They can also refer you on to other mental health services.

Who else can I call?

Let’s Talk is a free NHS service for anyone experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety, stress and depression. It can be contacted on 0800 073 2200 or via

You can call the Samaritans on 116 123.
