Her 57-year-old mother was convicted of causing Samantha actual bodily harm by a Manchester Crown Court jury.

The six-week trial heard that Lyndsey had been subjected to physical abuse over several years at the home she shared with the Reids in Sydney Street, Platt Bridge, until her body just gave out.

The pair will be sentenced on Friday.
