Kavan was left seriously injured following an incident in an alleyway just off Langsett Walk on Tuesday.

He was taken to hospital where he died as a result of his injuries on Saturday.

A post-mortem examination carried out yesterday afternoon concluded that he died from a single stab wound to the chest.

We believe there are people within the community who will be able to help with our enquiries as we piece together exactly what happened and work to identify those involved.

It’s these people who we need to come forward and speak to us, we need to work together to provide answers for Mr Brissett’s family and bring those responsible to justice.

The investigation continues to progress as we have arrested two boys, aged 17 and 16 on suspicion of conspiracy to rob. They currently remain in custody.
