The mother of a 17-year-old boy, who was stabbed to death at a house party in Essex, said she was "numb" and "angry" over his killing. She added that Jay Whiston was trying to protect a friend when he was attacked.

It's any mother's worst nightmare. He was loved by everyone and so caring.
My son had never been in trouble with the police before. He hated bullies and hated people being unfair.
I still feel numb but I'm starting to feel angry now. How can thugs ruin innocent lives at their will? There's no rhyme or reason to it.
