The family of a man who died in a street stabbing in Essex have described him as their "protector and best friend".
24-year-old Hassan Mohammed from Camberwell, south east London, was found dead in York Road in Southend on Monday evening.
The provisional results of a post-mortem examination found he died of blood loss as a result of two stab wounds.
Hassan was a very friendly, caring person.
He grew from a boy into a man and was a protector and best friend to his family.
He was loved by all but especially by his two nieces who adored their Uncle Hass immensely.
We pray that justice is served and that he soon will be able to rest in peace.
18-year-old Tajwar Alam from Tottenham, north London, has been charged with Mr Mohammed's murder.
He will appear before magistrates in Southend tomorrow.
