Prosecution still unlikely over Jade Anderson death

Police say it is unlikely they will prosecute anybody over the death of Jade Anderson because they could not prove a crime had been committed.

At this stage of the inquiry, we do not have anything evidentially to categorically prove a crime has been committed, therefore it is unlikely at this stage we will be seeking to bring a prosecution.

That is not to say that no prosecution will ever be brought.

Earlier this month the family of Jade Anderson launched a petition to change the law. Read more about the "Justice for Jade" petition here.
