The family of a 15-year-old girl with advanced anorexia who died after being hit by a train say they don't want her death to be in vain.
Pippa McManus had been treated at the Priory Hospital in Altrincham but was allowed home.
She managed to walk to Gatley station in Stockport where she stepped in front of a train.
On an earlier visit, Pippa had left 'goodbye letters' to her family and dog saying she couldn't 'fight anorexia anymore'.

A family from Stockport has launched a desperate bid to raise £60,000 for crucial treatment for a young woman who has a condition so rare that no surgeon in the UK is trained to treat it.
Mandy Cooper has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a rare and incurable genetic disorder which causes the production of faulty collagen in her body, making her joints and other connective tissue throughout her body too stretchy.
After paying privately to be scanned in the UK's only upright MRI scanner it was also discovered that the stretchy ligaments in her neck were leaving her spine and skull unstable causing her vertebrae to dislocate and crush her brain stem and spinal cord causing irreversible damage and the daily possibility of paralysis and even death.
