A 17-year-old boy fatally stabbed in Manchester has been named.

Kyle Hackland was rushed to hospital following an incident in Southlea Road, Withington, shortly after 11.30am on Tuesday.

He died a short while later.

Kyle’s devastated parents have now paid tribute to their ‘beautiful’ and ‘caring’ son.

In a statement released through police, his family said: ‘We are devasted by the death of our beloved Kyle.

‘He was such a kind and well-mannered young boy who always looked out for his family – never failing to say, “love you” as he walked out the door.

‘There are no words that can even begin to describe the pain we feel. We have always been such a close family, and this has shattered us all.

‘He will forever be missed as a beautiful son as well as a caring and helpful big brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. Life will never be the same without him, we are completely broken.’
