An 18 year-old man who was stabbed to death in Birmingham has been described as a 'role model'.
Jordan Moazami, from Quinton, Birmingham, was named by officials at the community football club where he was a much-valued mentor and former youth player.
The 18-year-old died at the scene after being found fatally wounded at about 7.15pm in Tennal Road, Harborne, on Wednesday (24th) evening.
A 19-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident remains in police custody, West Midlands Police said.
His death came as official figures showed knife crime in England and Wales reached record levels last year.
He is the eighth person to die in a stabbing-related incident in the West Midlands since the start of 2019.
