A boy who was pulled out of a canal in Greater
Manchester has died, police have said.

The 17-year-old victim was found after police were called to
the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, near Trinity Street,
Stalybridge at 15:10 BST on Saturday.
The boy was pulled out of the water by officers and taken to
hospital, where he later died.
Police are investigating why the teenager was in the canal
and said his death was being treated as unexplained.

someone else has been responsible,” a police spokesman
said.
He said the boy had been seen outside Coral bookmakers
on Grosvenor Street at 14:50.
Police said the boy was mixed race, and wearing a dark grey
