Tributes have been paid to Isaiah online, with his twin sister Iman Anne Usen-Satchell among those to remember him.

Posting on Facebook, she said: “It’s so satisfying and relieving to know that he touched so many people’s lives and that so many people genuinely love him.”

Sally Mottram said Isaiah will be ‘missed by lots of people’ and Aangel Turton described him as ‘such a beautiful person inside and out’.

Lisa Hulme described Isaiah as ‘such a character and a gentleman’ and called him ‘a true star’.

Jodie Myles posted: “He was a wonderful boy. I feel now, looking back on it, that he made teaching days better with his huge smile and sense of mischief. I cried a lot today, so needless.”

Naomi Celleste said Isaiah was ‘a lovely young man with a promising future’.

A police cordon remains in place and under guard this morning at the crime scene.
