The mother of a 13 year old girl whose death was caused by the drug ecstasy is urging people to come forward with information about her death.

Eboney Cheshire fell ill at a house in Rainhill a year ago. She died in hospital.

Watch Ashley Dericott's report here:

A Post Mortem later determined the cause of death was MDMA Toxicity.

Her grieving mother says the family need answers.

We need to know what happened that night. Did she take it willingly, did she know what she was doing, or was it put into her drink? Did she even know what she was doing?

Police say that while the investigation into Eboney's death continues, nobody has yet been arrested or charged despite extensive enquiries.

They remain "as determined as ever" to find out who supplied the drugs which took the young girl's life.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Earl said the year anniversary of Eboney's death is a good chance to urge people to come forward with information.

He said the force remains sure "that people within her friendship groups or the wider community may still hold vital information to help our investigation."

This past year has been unbearably difficult for Eboney's family.

Do the right thing for Eboney and her family and help them and us get the answers we all need.

It's hoped that people who know something may now feel more comfortable about coming forward, or be in a different situation, than they were 12 months ago.

The Merseyside Police team say they will treat all information sensitively, whether you come forward directly or anonymously.
