An organisation set up in memory of a Shropshire teenager, whose body was found in woodland, has reached charitable status.

The Georgia Williams Trust, set up in June, announced on its Facebook page that it is now a registered charity.

The body of Georgia Williams, 17, was discovered off the Nant-y-Garth pass, near Wrexham, on 31 May.

Jamie Reynolds, 22, of Avondale Road, Wellington, Shropshire, has appeared in court charged with Georgia's murder.

Trustees include representatives from West Mercia Police, New College, where Georgia was a member of the student council, Ercall Wood Technology College, her old school, the Air Training Corps squadron she was a member of, and AFC Telford.

Georgia's sister, Scarlett, is also a trustee.

Earlier this month, Georgia's father, Steve Williams, said: "The trust will ultimately be used to enable young people of Telford and Wrekin to access enrichment activities, whether that be canoeing, rock climbing, tennis, flying or something else.

"And also to encourage young people to volunteer."
