A man critically injured in a knife attack at a hostel in Queensland, Australia, has been identified as Tom Jackson from Congleton.
A 21-year-old British woman died after being stabbed in the attack.
The woman, named locally as Mia Ayliffe-Chung, from Derbyshire, was described as "gorgeous" by friends. She attended school in Buxton.
Police said a 29-year-old French national carried out the knife attack in Queensland which also left a 30-year-old British man in a critical condition.
Monique Cross, an Australian friend of Miss Ayliffe-Chung, told the Press Association: "She was a gorgeous person. It's an awful tragedy - I can't believe it."
It's believed Mr Jackson was trying to intervene in the attack and save Mia Aycliffe-Chung. Reports suggest he has several stab wounds to the face.
