A Merseyrail employee has been interviewed by police over the death of a teenage girl at a Merseyside station.

Georgia Varley, 16, was killed when she fell between a train and the platform at James Street station on 22 October.

The teenager from Wallasey had been celebrating at an 18th birthday party with friends before the incident.

British Transport Police interviewed a 44-year-old man under caution and released him on bail until 11 January. Merseyrail said it had suspended him.

A Merseyrail spokesman said: "Merseyrail and its staff will continue to co-operate fully with British Transport Police to ensure that the full facts are established as soon as possible so that Georgia's family and friends can find answers to exactly what happened and help them to come to terms with their loss.

"We extend our deepest sympathy to Georgia's family and friends at this difficult time."

He said that the employee had been suspended on full pay.
