AN INVESTIGATION has been launched following the death of a teenager in an industrial accident in Bury.

Sixteen-year-old Cameron Minshull suffered a serious head injury just before 10.45am on Tuesday at a factory in Huntley Mount Road.

He was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital for treatment, where he died a short time later.

Greater Manchester Police and the Health And Safety Executive have started a joint investigation into the incident.

In a statement, Cameron’s family said: “We have lost a very precious part of our lives and there are no words that can describe how we are feeling.

“Cameron was a much loved son, brother, nephew , grandson, great-grandson and a friend to many. He will leave a big hole in many people's hearts.

“We just ask at this terrible time if we could have some space to grieve as a family.”
