The family of 19-year-old Kelsey Womersley, whose death in an incident in Birstall on Friday remains under investigation, have asked people not to donate to a 'gofundme' fundraising page.

The family want to highlight that the 'Justice for Kelsey / Kelsey's send off' page is not something they were consulted about and therefore do not support at what continues to be a very difficult time for them.

Police say the family do not require any fundraising in relation to Kelsey's death and are advising members of the public who might make donations that this is not something they need.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old girl arrested on suspicion of murder has been released under investigation, pending continuing enquiries.

Detectives say they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the matter and also that they are aware of speculation on Facebook regarding this case and wish to remind residents this remains a live investigation.
