/ Death of girl in Kersal no longer suspicious

The death of a 16-year-old girl in Kersal Salford is no longer being treated as suspicious.

At around 9.25am on Monday 28 January 2019 police were called to reports that a 16-year-old girl was missing from her home in Prestwich, Bury.

Shortly before 9.45am police received a second call saying that the girl had sadly been found dead in a derelict building near to Brookside Drive in Kersal.

A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder, however he has now been released and there will be no further action taken.

Our thoughts remain with the girl's family at this devastating time.

A file will now be passed on to the Coroner.
