Leicestershire Police has issued the following comment after 18-year-old Jack Buckley admitted the manslaughter of his best friend Ryan Morrell, whose car was torched after a music festival in July.
Detective Superintendent Matt Hewson, who led the investigation said:
“The consequences in this horrific incident are that a person has lost his life.
“Two families have been torn apart by the events that night - not just the family of Ryan, who have to face life without him, but also the family of Buckley.
“I hope today’s plea will go some way to helping Ryan’s family to move forward and start to rebuild their lives.”
