The fifteen year old boy stabbed earlier this week in Moston has died of his injuries. Kyron Webb was attacked on Tuesday evening on Worsley Avenue. He was taken to hospital but died earlier today. A 13-year-old boy was arrested but has since been eliminated from police enquiries. Earlier today, police arrested an 18-year-old man, a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, they remain in custody for questioning. Their investigation is now a murder inquiry

We know the area was busy at the time of the attack and it’s likely someone saw something that they don’t necessarily realise could prove vital to our investigation. If you saw something, please call us. A boy’s life has been taken away and his family deserve answers.
