Lancashire gender change teacher inquest opens

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.
