AN inquest into the death of Ukrainian schoolgirl Albina Levka heard she died from multiple injuries.

An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned today, Wednesday, at Exeter's Coroner's Court.

The short hearing heard how Albina, who lived with her mother in Piermont Place, Dawlish, was born in Ukraine on February 1, 2009.

Albina Yevko, a 14-year-old refugee, died in hospital after she was found unconscious on the beach at Dawlish.

Alison Longhorn, area coroner for Devon, confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death on March 5.

She said a post-mortem conducted by a Home Office pathologist found she had died from ‘multiple injures’. 

She added that further tests were being carried out to establish the exact cause of death.

The coroner said she was awaiting a full autopsy report and the laboratory tests before a full inquest could be held at Exeter's County Hall at a later date.

Devon and Cornwall Police have also described her death as 'not suspicious'.
