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.
