The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited a housing project where the grisly murder of a 16-year-old girl took place more than six years ago.
During a tour of Blackpool, William and Kate visited Kirby Road, where a local authority-owned housing company has bought several dilapidated properties and transformed them into modern homes and apartments to rent.
One of the properties visited used to be known as the Grafton House Hotel, where barman David Minto, then 23, lured 16-year-old Sasha Marsden to her death in January 2013 on the false promise of a job.

Instead, he stabbed her 58 times inside the hotel in an attack described in court as ‘sexually motivated’.
Minto, who was jailed for life, dumped Sasha’s body, wrapped in a bin liner and carpet underlay, in an alleyway near the hotel.
The injuries of the childcare student, from Staining, near Blackpool, were so severe she had to be identified by DNA from her toothbrush.
William and Kate came to the Lancashire resort to see some of the health and social problems facing the town.
They started their day at Blackpool Tower, where they were greeted at the landmark amid downpours with cheers from a crowd of several hundred well-wishers gathered outside on the promenade.
