Protesters gather to demand "Justice for Shukri" on the anniversary of her death

Huge crowds have gathered in cities across the UK including Manchester and Liverpool to march in the name of Shukri Abdi.

It is a year since the 12 year old Somalian refugee drowned in the River Irwell. The inquest into her death has been adjourned

At the time Greater Manchester Police said they were treating Shurki's death as a "tragic incident".

The Police watchdog investigated complaints about the way the force handled the case over concerns that Shukri's family were treated less favourably because of their ethnic origin.

Those findings will be published when an inquest into her death concludes.

Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham has asked for a wider inquiry into Shukri's death after receiving more than 6000 emails about her case.

The 12 year old has become a figurehead in the Black Lives Matter movement.
