A model was found hanged after fearing that she was about to be forced into an arranged marriage by her Muslim parents

Nadia Menaz, 24, was found dead at her home in Oldham, Greater Manchester in May 2015, five months after taking out a court order to stop her family from forcing her to marry. The mother-of-one had already married husband Umar Rasool in an Islamic ceremony, but her family did not approve of him and the union was not recognized under English law, Oldham Coroner's Court heard.
