“My heart goes out to Kyron and his family during this extremely difficult time. I can’t imagine what they are going through and we are doing all we can to support them.

“We will not stop until those responsible are brought to justice and I would like to appeal directly to the public to please come forward with any information you have.

“We know the area was busy at the time of the attack and it’s likely someone saw something that they don’t necessarily realise could prove vital to our investigation. If you saw something, please call us.
