The family of a 19-year-old, who died following a stabbing in Oxfordshire, has paid tribute to him.

Joshua Harling was found on Chinnor Road in Thame last Wednesday (22 July).

A post-mortem confirmed he had died from a stab wound to the chest.

His family say the impact he had on so many people's lives is 'unforgettable'.

They say: “He had the ability to light up any room he walked into with just one cheeky smile.  He was charismatic, selfless and had a contagious laugh along with his jokes.  He made sure everyone around him was happy.  A lovable lad that wore his heart on his sleeve. He had the world at his feet, with his every growing ambition to succeed in every aspect of his life. Striving to be the best he could be in his profession in the finance industry."

They also described Joshua as a 'protector, rock and shining star'.

19-year-old Nathan Braim has been charged with murder and has been remanded in custody.

A plea hearing is due to take place in October.

A 15-year-old boy from Oxfordshire and two 19-year-old men from Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire who were arrested on suspicion of murder, have all been released on conditional police bail.
