A vigil organised by a Wigan LGBTQ+ group was held at the Face of Wigan, in Believe Square, to pay tribute to the teenager, who was a transgender girl fatally stabbed in Culcheth’s Linear Park on February 11.
The Wigan event was one of many hosted across the UK and Ireland.
A further vigil is planned for 6.30pm today (Friday February 17) on Culcheth Village Green, just down the road from where she died.
A 15-year-old boy from Leigh and a 15-year-old girl from Warrington have appeared before a Liverpool Crown Court judge charged with her murder.
