Andrew Haigh, the senior coroner for South Staffordshire, concluded the carer was unlawfully killed.
Following the hearing, Miss Barden’s mother, Kate, issued a statement saying: “Hope was a beautiful, intelligent young woman. She had paid work in the area as a carer for people with learning disabilities.
“Hope had been earning extra money working in the online adult film industry. Unregulated, this industry serves no one except those who wish to perpetrate violence against women.”
