Approximately ten hours later, Greater Manchester Police informed Ms Ture, but she said they spoke to her “harshly” and “tried to convince [her] that her daughter had been swimming”.

On Thursday, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) announced it had begun an investigation following a complaint about police actions following her death.

The family lawyer Attiq Malik said: “There are often complaints from the BAME communities that the police don’t give their concerns due weight.

“To turn around so quickly and do a public press release saying ‘we do not believe there is anything wrong’, it is the family’s firm position that they have been treated that way because of their race.
