Danny Irons was murdered in a violent knife attack in Manor on April 17.

Previously, a 24-year-old man and 28-year-old man arrested have been released under investigation.

In her tribute to Danny, his mum Christine Irons 51, said she is still struggling to come to terms with her family’s loss.

She said she is desperate for answers about Danny’s death and why he was targeted on the estate where he grew up.

A fundraising appeal has also been launched to help the family give “the best send off possible” for him.
