Named for the first time: Charlie Hurd was aged just 16 when he killed a youth worker

The father of a youth worker, stabbed to death simply for asking a teenager to stop selling drugs, has hit out at the legal system for protecting the identity of his son's killer.

Charlie Hurd

Charlie Hurd can be named for the first time today as the person who killed Omid Saidy last October.

Omid's father says his life has been destroyed by Hurd's actions. He told our Senior Correspondent Ronke Phillips that while he's relieved his son's killer can finally be named, he and his family feel massively let down by the justice system.
