Police had cordoned off a street in Mirfield on Wednesday after a schoolboy was reportedly found 'pouring with blood'.

One eyewitness said a bloodied schoolboy was taken away from the scene by ambulance and the ambulance had a police escort.

There are no words to describe how we are feeling right now. James, you are amazing and your mum, me and your brothers miss you like crazy. Just want you back. I knew I could leave you to look after your mum and brothers if I wasn’t around. I don’t know what to do now. Thanks to those that have given and sent wishes and those that tried to help. The MFG, teachers and particularly the children from their have been exceptional.

You had so much ahead of you that we won’t be able to share and you were definitely loved - I hope you knew that.

We don’t know what to do without you - you helped to fill our home and car and now life feels empty. So very proud of the young man you were growing up to be. You certainly were popular, more than we ever realised.

– Father, Michael Hick
