An inquest is due to be held into the death of a male teacher who returned to classes in Lancashire after the school holidays as a woman. Nathan Upton, 32, went through a transition to live as a woman in the months before she was found dead in March.
A teacher at St Mary Magdelen's CofE Primary School in Accrington, pupils were told last December that Mr Upton should be addressed as Miss Lucy Meadows after the Christmas break.
Concerns from some parents were reported in the media and the story gained national headlines when the news broke.
The body of Miss Meadows was found at a house in Accrington on March 19.
The inquest will be held later at Blackburn Register Office.
Detectives are appealing for information after robbers tried to force a woman into a car before stealing her handbag and phone in Accrington.
At around 8:15pm last night the woman was walking along Blackburn Road talking on her phone when she walked past a man who was leaning up against the wall.
As she passed the man and approached Portland Street, he grabbed her from behind, and tried to force her into a silver car parked on Portland Street but fortunately, the woman was able to struggle free and get away but took her phone and her handbag.
We would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and may have witnessed anything to come forward and contact police if they have not done so already.
“In particular, I am keen to speak to two girls who are believed to have walked past as the offence was taking place, they may have seen something or have information that is crucial to the investigation so I would urge them to come forward.”
