Mr Blake, of Gleadless, who was a father to three children under the age of five, was stabbed at the junction of Brackley Street and Catherine Street on Thursday, March 8, at 3.20pm.

His friend, a 23-year-old man, was also stabbed in the incident but was discharged from hospital at the weekend after treatment.

Police are treating it as a targeted attack in which a car pulled up and an unknown number of people inside jumped out before chasing Jarvin and his friend and stabbing them.

Detective chief inspector Steve Handley appealed for anyone with information - in particular motorists with dashcam footage - to come forward.
