Greater Manchester Police has opened a new investigation into the death of teenager Charlie Millers following a coroner's intervention.

The 17-year-old trans boy from Stretford, Trafford, was found unresponsive in his room with injuries caused by a ligature late in the evening of December 2, 2020.

He died five days later, having suffered a hypoxic brain injury in the incident at mental health unit Junction 17, at the site of the former Prestwich Hospital, run by Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust (GMMH).

In April there was an inquest into Charlie's death - an inquest being a public, fact-finding hearing into a sudden, unexpected or violent death - which concluded that he did not intend to take his own life.
