The victim’s father, Henry Nwokejiobi, paid tribute to his son on Saturday morning, saying: ‘Jesse was a good son and at home he was very creative and loving.

‘He made jokes, cooked a lot and helped with the chores. He was a quick learner and did very well at school. He did really well with his GCSEs and we all hoped he would become a medical doctor.

‘I miss him terribly. I will love him forever.’

Three boys – two 14-year-olds and a 17-year-old – have already been arrested on suspicion of murder and have all been released on bail.
