First pics of gran, 48, found dead in woods after reports of ‘person on fire’

This is the first pictures of a much-loved grandmother whose body was discovered in woodlands after reports of a "person on fire."

Police have said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of 48-year-old Julie Ainsley, who was found in a wooded area of Williams Road, Moston, Manchester just after 6pm on Saturday (November 14).

Flowers have since been laid at the scene and friends and family have posted messages of tribute.

Ms Aisley's heartbroken daughter Jade Riley told the Manchester Evening News how her mum was "always happy and making people laugh."

Ms Riley said: "She was obviously battling with her issues, but most of the time she made out she was fine.

"She had five grandchildren and one on the way and she loved her family."

Her ex-partner Steven Riley told how she had sadly battled with mental health issues for a long time.

"She was great, she was a mum and a grandma", he said.

"She lived in Moston all of her life. We still got on really well and I loved her, she was my kid's mam.

"She struggled with her mental health and it had got worse, she just struggled with everyday life."

Ms Ainsley leaves behind four children and five grandchildren. She also had another grandchild on the way.

Dozens of her friends and family members have flooded social media with tributes for her.

Olivia Sheridan said: "Can’t believe what I’m hearing Julie, you were so loved and such a lovely woman.

"Thank you for all the memories over the years growing up, I just hope you're at peace Julie. We all love you."

Holly Miller said: "Absolutely devastated about you Julie my heart hurts for your girls and grandkids.

"You was one in a million juju xx."
