Police found crime scene of Mirfield murder "horrific"

Police have welcomed the guilty verdicts for Smith and Church today.

This was an attack which was clearly pre-mediated and demonstrated a shocking level of violence, sadly resulting in this young man's death. The crime scene we saw as police officers was horrific and I wish to pay tribute to their bravery and dignity in having to try and cope with the impact of this appalling crime.

– Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Chris Walker
