Raymond Dutton, who lives in Manchester, also admitted he did not believe his nephew’s murder could have been prevented, adding: “He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

If we're going to safeguard our citizens on the streets of Great Britain then this report needs to be looked into in fine detail.

Hopefully any learning from the report will be put to good use and then Lee's death wouldn't have been in vain.
