A teenager who died in the street was "a family-orientated boy" and had "a heart of gold," his parents said.

Jordan Carter, 18, suffered a serious leg injury in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, on Friday night.

Two boys, 14, and a girl, 16, have been charged with joint enterprise murder.

Mr Carter lived in Berkhamsted with his two younger brothers and his mother, Nicola, who said: "Jordan was a joker and would always have us laughing with the things he said."

She added: "He had a great sense of humour, loved his music and was a loving, kind-hearted and family-orientated boy."

Jordan's father, Ian Carter, who lives in Hemel Hempstead, said: "Jordan had a heart of gold and was very loyal to his family.

"He teased his younger brothers a lot but was also really good to them.

"He was always good with younger children and I always thought that he would be a wonderful father one day in the future."

Hertfordshire Police said the family was being supported by specialist officers.
