Cameron Minshull: Vigil for factory death boy, 16

Vigil for Cameron Minshull
Cameron Minshull died weeks after starting an apprenticeship

More than 1,000 people have attended a memorial service to remember a boy, 16, who died in an industrial accident weeks after starting an apprenticeship.

Cameron Minshull died after he was pulled into machinery at an engineering firm in Bury, Greater Manchester.

Friday evening's vigil in Radcliffe was attended by family and school friends who released lanterns.

A joint Greater Manchester Police and Health and Safety Executive investigation is under way.

His friend Kurtis Gould said: "It was the worst news that could possibly happen - one of my best mates I've known him all my life. Probably one of the most popular lads about - he didn't deserve it."

The accident happened at Huntley Mount Road, Bury, on Tuesday morning.

Cameron was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital but died a short time later.
