Isaiah Usen-Satchell was stabbed to death in Sheffield on New Year's Day

Five Rotherham men, aged between 18 and 27, were arrested over the fatal stabbing and released on police bail pending further enquiries.

They are due to answer their bail next month.

Isaiah’s friend, Levi Fallon, has set up a fundraising appeal on Facebook to help pay for the funeral.

He said: “Isaiah has impacted a lot of people's lives and it was a very devastating loss for his friends and family.

“It would be much appreciated if everyone could come together and donate to create the best send off for this young man. Also to raise awareness for knife crime in Sheffield and the UK, and show what it can take from people - a son, a twin brother, a student or a best friend who should've had a future.”

Anyone with information about the murder should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 and quote incident 458 of January 1.
