A teenage girl who died three days after a north Dorset car crash had suffered severe head injuries, an inquest heard.

Ellie Jackson, 16, was a front seat passenger in a silver Volkswagen Polo which crashed on the Sherborne Causeway on June 30.

A Bournemouth inquest was told the teenager, from Park Walk in Shaftesbury, died in Southmead Hospital in Bristol on July 3 from traumatic brain injuries.

The inquest was adjourned to a date to be fixed.
