An inquest into the death of a Burnley schoolboy who fell from a bridge into the Leeds and Liverpool Canal is due to be opened on Monday.

East Lancashire Coroner Mr Richard Taylor is expected to adjourn the inquest into how Robbie Williamson (11) died to allow time for further tests to be carried out.

Robbie, a Shuttleworth College pupil, died at the Royal Blackburn Hospital following the tragedy, in Lowerhouse Lane, on Tuesday night.
